I was born and raised in Chicago, and my family still lives in that great city!  I have a twin sister, and two nieces and two nephews.  Being an Aunt is one of my greatest joys in life!

I attended Hope College in Holland, Michigan where I received my BA in Science for Elementary Education. 

I studied biology, chemistry, physics, meteorology, geology, astronomy, and applied sciences.  I worked in the geology lab  and in the applied sciences lab (technology).  I spent a term in Ecuador doing biological field work on a biodiversity study of certain hectares of the Amazon Rainforest and the Galapagos Islands.  I wrote enrichment curriculum for the local community of home school students in the subjects of geology and astronomy.  I taught these curricula when I spent a term student teaching on the Rosebud Lakota Reservation in South Dakota.

I spent time writing and teaching science camp classes to students ages Kindergarten through 8th grade.  I worked on camps in the areas of biology, basic anatomy, geology, paleontology, basic chemistry, and forensics (applied sciences).

I love to travel, read, draw, and drink coffee!  My home is always busy, since it is a pet palace.  I raise Gouldian Finches, have a mean cat, and keep three aquariums.   

In 2005 I moved to North Carolina with my husband and began my career with Wilson County Schools. I have taught Kindergarten, First, and Fifth grade. I am so excited to be at Lucama Elementary School teaching First Grade!
