I am a graduate of Carlisle High School, Morningside University in Sioux City, Iowa and I am currently pursuing a masters degree in administration through Drake University.
I enjoy traveling, teaching students at school and dance as well as spending time with my husband and dog.
I graduated with my bachelors in Human Development from THE Ohio State University and worked as a social worker for 2 and a half years before deciding to get my Masters in Education. I completed my Masters in Teaching, Elementary Education from Western Governor’s University in 2021. I completed my student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom in Waukee Community School District. I then served as a long term substitute in 3rd grade. This will be my first year in my own classroom and I am super excited to begin my teaching career as a McKinley Eagle!
I live in West Des Moines with my husband Zach, and our dog Odie. I enjoy reading, baking and watching new movies. Every weekend in the Fall and Winter, you will find me watching football and cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes and Cincinnati Bengals!
