I graduated from East High School here in Des Moines in 2017. I continued my education at Simpson College where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 2021. Although this will be my first-year teaching, I have had many jobs in the district including Metro Kids, AmeriCorps, and subbing! I am so excited to start my teaching career here at Findley! When I am not teaching, you can find me outside hiking or traveling through the National Parks!
I have been teaching in the Des Moines Public Schools since 2016. I began as a substitute then was hired as an interventionist. I am so happy to be teaching at Findley! I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2010 with a degree in psychology. After that I went to Drake University and earned a degree in teaching. Outside of school I enjoy reading, cheering on the Hawkeyes, and spending time with my husband and five small dogs (Wiley, Petey, Maddie, Harley, Davey).
