After serving four years on active duty in the United States Coast Guard, I followed my heart and became who I was always meant to be. I became an educator. I completed my teaching certification through Grand Valley State University in 2010 and then my Masters in Educational Leadership in 2021. Over the last decade, I have had the privilege of helping elementary students fall in love with learning. I have taught growing minds in Young 5’s, Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 6th grade.
In addition to education, I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with loved ones. My husband Derek, my daughter Liliana, my son Lachlan, and I are all life-long learners and cherish our time outdoors exploring the many lakes, trails, beaches, and the various natural resources that this beautiful area has to offer. I love the hunt for a Petoskey stone, kayaking in our pristine rivers, boating in our crystal blue waters, chasing chickens around our yard, laughing around campfires, and creating memorable adventures with family and friends!
I am thrilled to be a part of The Greenspire School family and look forward to sharing my passion for education and learning with you!
