Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I want to help students to love learning as much as I did growing up; that everything is an adventure to be explored.


Personal Interests

In my spare time, I love to read and write, as well as travel. My husband and I try to take an extended vacation every summer as well as going to Arizona during spring break for Royals spring training. I’m a huge Royals fan and enjoy going to the K in the summer to games. We also have one Keeshond, Beaux and hope to be getting one on the way which will be named Duffy.
