Hello there! This is my second year here at Garrisonville Elementary School! I am a proud USMC wife of almost 14 years. We have three kids-- our daughter is a 3rd gator this year at GES, our middle son is a 7th grader at Shirley Heim Middle, and our oldest son is a sophomore at Brooke Point High School.

After learning that one of our children was dyslexic, I sought out training and became a certified dyslexia practitioner. Through this, I found that working with children, especially those that struggled with learning, was a passion of mine. I decided to return to school and earned a master's degree in Special Education from Purdue University. 

I love watching football (Go Vols!), camping with my family, and crafting when I can find the time! I'm excited for another year as a Gator with my new and returning students!
