I was born in Burlington, Iowa. I attended school K-12 in the Burlington Community School District. I worked as a manager for a movie store for a while, before deciding I wanted to be a teacher. I have lived in Iowa City, IA, St. Paul, MN, and I currently reside in Burlington. I had a son, Miles, in 2006. In 2008, I was accepted into the University of Iowa College of Education. I am an avid Hawkeye Fan. I enjoy reading, listening to music, being outdoors, and instilling a love for learning and for our environment in my students.
