Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

Education is the key to a bright and successful future. Education opens minds, creates strong communities, and appreciation for the world.


Personal Interests

I enjoy spending time with my family. We like to spend time on our farm attending to gardens and animals.  Hiking, swimming, and kayaking are some summer adventures, and watching hockey, attending Northwest Missouri Bearcat activities, and reading are some winter activities.
