I began teaching in the Smithville School District in 2001. During this time, I have taught the 5th and 4th Grades at the Upper Elementary. I received my Education degree from Missouri Western in St. Joseph. I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from UMKC. My first degree was in Business from William Jewell College. I worked at TWA and American Century Mutual Fund in Customer Service.
My husband David and I have two children named Eric and Allison. We attend the Smithville First Christian Church. I love reading, music, cooking, Zumba, and spending time with my family! I collect reindeer and penguins!
