I am so excited to be teaching at St. Patrick School in first and second grade. I grew up here in Cedar Falls and am an alumni of St. Patrick School. This school is a place where I have always felt comfortable and where I started to love learning.

Graduating from Iowa State University, I majored in Fine Arts with an emphasis in ceramics.  I then received my Elementary Education degree from UNI. Pottery is one of my most favorite hobbies. I love working on the wheel and teaching myself new techniques. I also love anything that has to do with athletics. This could range from playing softball to watching a game at home. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to play softball for Iowa State while I attended. 

I am married to my husband Jason and enjoy being part of the St. Patrick School community.
