I grew up in Coffey County and graduated from Gridley High School n 2002. I went on to attend Wichita State University where I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education.
I started teaching Pre-School Special Education at Burlington Elementray School in 2021.
I started my first teaching position right out of college in 2006 at Southern Coffey County Middle School. I taught 5th Grade there for 4 years. After having my second child I became a stay at home mom for 10 years while raising our family.
