I graduated from Central College in 2006 with a degree in Communication Studies and teaching endorsements for Speech Communications and Theatre. I spent two years substitute teaching in the Grand Rapids area before moving to Pella with my husband in 2008. My career at Pella began with teaching in the Academic Assistance program. Since then, I have earned a 5-12 English endorsement and began teaching English classes in 2011. I enjoy serving as one of the drama directors and speech coaches.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing the piano, and completing house projects.
