It is the best job in the world.”She got married in June 2014 so she and her husband still consider themselves 'newlyweds.'

She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 2011 with a degree in elementary education. After graduation Mrs. Weatherbie chose to move to Washington for student teaching, she fell in love with this state in high school and the rest is history!
