I graduated from UW-Oshkosh with a Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education with a minor in Adapted Physical Education, and Coaching. I later returned to Oshkosh to earn my Health certification. While attending Oshkosh I competed on the track and field team as a sprinter.
I started teaching at Saylesville in 2005 and in 2009 I enrolled at UW La Crosse to earn my masters in Adventure Education with an emphasis on Outdoor Pursuits. I also taught at Plat Elementary School in the Richfield School District for one year. In addition to teaching, I coached basketball and track and field at Saylesville, and track and field at Hartford Union High School.
This is my 12th year teaching at HoNoR Intermediate (Saylesville). I have taught Physical Education, Health, and Technology throughout that time. I am the staff wellness coordinator, yearbook adviser, Jump Rope for Heart/Hoops for Heart adviser and Fuel Up to Play 60 adviser, cross country and track and field coach and student and adult pickle ball coordinator.
My husband Jon and I have three active children. Our oldest, Joseph, is a fourth grader at Erin School. He enjoys all sports, but especially baseball, pickle ball and fishing. Our daughter, Olivia, is in first grade at Erin School. She enjoys ballet and singing in the St. Kilian choir. Our youngest, Michael, is three. He enjoys anything rough and tough but he is also a little clown.
