This is my 12th year with OPS. I started my career teaching 2nd grade at Ponca Elementary for 7 years. I then accepted a new role as an Instructional Facilitator and Academic Data Rep where I have served at Liberty Elementary for 2 years and now I begin my second year in this same role here at Saddlebrook. I love my job of serving and supporting all staff and students in the areas of curriculum, instruction and assessments.

I started my path to becoming an educator at UNL and finished my degree at UNO. I have a masters in Curriculum and Instruction through Doane University, a 2nd masters in Reading with an endorsement in ESL through Concordia University and a 3rd masters in Educational Leadership/Administration through Doane University.

I am also a busy mom to 3 young boys. I have a 4 year old named Brady and a set of 2 year old twins named Beckham & Braxton. My husband and I are from Omaha and met back in high school. When I am not at Saddlebrook I like to plan less and play more by spending time with our family and our friends.
