I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I attended the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire to earn my degree in Elementary Education with a minor in German. Since earning my degree I have taught in various places to include Milwaukee, Camp Lejeune, Mountain House California, and now currently at Blue Creek Elementary School. I have also taught a variety of garde levels to include 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th. I have served as a Mock Trial Middle School Coach, a Star Lab Coordinator and Teacher, and a STEAM Teacher. I enjoy working with students at all grade levels.
I grew up being a competitive swimmer since the age of 8. I have coached for 3 different competitive swim teams in the past and enjoyed evey moment of it. I also enjoy running and have completed a number of half marathons and other charity races. I enjoy staying active, even if it is just walking my rescue dog.
I am married to a marine and have a 1 year old son and a 9 year old step daughter. They keep me busy when I'm not at school. All of my family lives in Wisconsin, so I enjoy taking trips home to visit everyone.
