I grew up in Frankfort, and I graduated from Lincoln-Way Central. When I was a child, I wanted to be a veterinarian....until I started teaching swim lessons at Camp Manitoqua. I quickly realized that my passions were in helping other people, mainly youth. I love being able to share my love of learning with my students in a safe and fun environment.I graduated in 2001 from Trinity Christian College. I earned my Masters Degree from Olivet Nazarene University in 2004. I taught 4th grade at Nelson Ridge for 16 years, and I am excited to teach third grade at Nelson Prairie this year. I live in Shorewood with my husband, our two sons, and our two Labrador Retrievers.
