I grew up in Cedar Rapids and graduated from The University of Iowa. I taught in Omaha for four years before moving to Des Moines. I happened to get a job at Findley and have been here ever since! I am married and have three children. When I am not at school I enjoy supporting my children’s activities and cheering for the Hawkeyes and St. Louis Cardinals.
I graduated from Drake University and have been teaching first grade at Findley since 1999. My husband Rick and I have two daughters, a son-in-law and a granddaughter. Our family is spread out all over the country, so we spend a lot of our free time traveling. I love to take long walks, ride my bike, and work in my garden.
