About Me:
I was born and raised in Hillsdale. After graduating from Hillsdale High School I attended Tri-State/Trine University where I played tennis and earned a Business Administration degree. In 2009, I became a substitute teacher and realized I loved being in the school system and interacting with students. I decided to further my education at Spring Arbor University to obtain a teaching certification in English and Health.
In 2013 I was hired as a Hillsdale High School teacher and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach here. I enjoy being with family, playing tennis, and watching football. If I am not in the school you might find me at the tennis courts, I am a volunteer assistant coach. I hope to see you on Friday nights where I volunteer taking tickets at the Varsity Football games. I love to support our students in their extra curricular activities. 
Hillsdale is my home. I believe in the success of our schools. I am honored and proud to be a hornet teacher and look forward to helping your students learn throughout the school year!
