I am originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I graduated from Grand Valley State University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree with a major in Integrated Science and minors in Elementary Education and Psychology. I've been teaching at St. Francis Xavier since 2013. I love teaching at St. Francis, and I am so happy to be working in such a caring community.

My goal is to instill a love of learning in my students. I strive to create a welcoming environment where students feel safe to express themselves and take academic risks.

My husband and I have one son. We enjoy spending time traveling, exploring Utah, going for walks in parks, and learning more about our Catholic faith. I love to read, crochet, and root for the Detroit Tigers.
