I grew up in Northwest Indiana. After high school, I attended college at Indiana State University where I earned my degree in Secondary Education. In 2012, I earned my Master of Education from Indiana Wesleyan University. After my time at ISU, my husband and I lived in Neenah, WI for four years. In 2000, we moved to Greenfield, IN and that is where we currently reside.

I have 16 years of teaching experience that has included middle and high school experience.  At Shortridge, I teach DP History I and II, and I am the CAS coordinator.

My husband and I have been married for 23 years and have two girls, Sydney and Alexis.
