I am privileged as a preschool teacher to often be the first witness to so many ground breaking moments. Young children are not inhibited by the knowledge and logic that sometimes dampens our ability to think outside the box, so every day brings something new. When children are young and starting to learn, they are willing participants in the education process. They want to learn about the world just as badly as I want to teach them.  I am passionate about helping young children learn and grow spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically through curriculum rooted in God's word. 

My husband, Nathan, is a Market Data Analyst at Vermeer Corporation and coaches football at Pella Christian High School.  Our daughter, Natalie, is a senior at Central College majoring in Athletic Training. Nathan and I also sit on the Parent Advisory Council for Central College.  As a family you will often find us at Third Church or on a football field – Faith, Family, Football! When not on a football field, I love to read and create.  I was recently appointed by the Pella City Council to the Library Board of Trustees, where I advocate and set policies for the library.
