Mrs. Hallowell was born in Hollywood, California, but was grew up in beautiful Santa Barbara, California. She and her husband moved to Oregon around 1980 to help with a family business.
Mrs. Hallowell has two children, Sean and Sara, who both attended Candalaria and graduated from South Salem High School. Sean went on to Brown and Columbia where he received a PhD in musicology. He lives in San Francisco and is getting married in April. Sara, who is a WOU grad and an interpreter, recently moved back to Salem from New York. Mrs. Hallowell is so happy to be closer to her grandchildren, Reid (4) and Lily (6)!
She spends a lot of time taking care of her aging mother. In her spare time, Mrs. Hallowell likes to garden, sew, craft, scrapbook and spend time with her grandchildren.. She also likes to travel and is particularly looking forward to her trip to her son's wedding in April with her daughter and granddaughter. .
Mrs. Hallowell worked for Salem-Keizer's Student Services department for 22 years before coming to Candalaria. She remembers thinking, back when her kids went to Candalaria, that the Candalaria office would be a fun place to work. She is so happy to be on the Candalaria staff now, and loves to see the smiles of the students each day. She says being at Candalaria "just feels right!"
