Growing up in Traverse City, my family spent a great deal of time outdoors. I started young walking and biking miles, exploring the many beautiful secrets of Northern Michigan. I would spend my Saturdays helping my mom weed her gardens and find rocks to line them. My parents instilled within me a love of the outdoors and now I enjoy taking my 11 year old son, who just began his adventures at Greenspire this year, on many of the same adventures. We enjoy swimming and hiking with our dog, Kasie, kayaking on the many beautiful rivers in the area, camping at many of the local family friendly festivals, and working in our garden.
I graduated from Central Michigan University with degrees in both special education and math. I am currently finishing a master’s in counseling through Western Michigan University.
I am going into my 6th year at Greenspire and can say that I have found a home in our school. I look forward to another amazing school year!
