I taught for two years in Northeast Minneapolis, and subbed for two years in the Wayzata and Elk River School Districts before coming to work at PVEMS. I live in my new home in Albertville with my husband Justin and 3 year old daughter Riley. We love our two cats, spending time family, and hanging out with the neighbors. I am also a swimmer and love the pool. I taught swimming lessons for years and coached 8-12 year old girls and boys for 2 years.

This is my first year at PVEMS. Before coming to PVEMS I taught for 9 years in the Minneapolis Public Schools as a second and fourth grade teacher.  I attended Bemidji State University for my undergrad and Mankato State for my Masters in Reading. When I am not teaching I am with my husband Chris and twin 3 year olds; Zeke and Zoey. We also have a black lab named Lexi. We enjoy being outside, exploring new parks and also sleeping in.

Fun Fact: When I traveled to Mexico I went swimming with dolphins and was attacked by one!
