I grew up in a family of 5 in River Falls. I am the youngest of three children. Along with my parents, I have 2 older brothers, 2 sisters-in-law, and a nephew who all still live in the River Falls area. I graduated from UW-River Falls in December of 2002 with a degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I substitute taught, in grades K-8, in 5 area school districts for 2½ years. From August 2005 until June 2007 I was the Title Math/SAGE teacher at Westside Elementary School. I have been at Greenwood Elementary since July 2007.
I have been married to my husband Eric since 2006.
Along with teaching children, I also enjoy collecting cow items, reading, baking, camping, fishing, playing board games, scrapbooking, laughing, and spending time with my family and friends.
