I received my Assistant and Lead Teacher Certificates while attending Madison East High School. Then went on to MATC and received my Infant and Toddler Certificate, along with having a scholarship through the T.E.A.C.H. program where I attended NWTC to further my education in the Early Childhood Education Field.
I started babysitting at the age of 12 for neighbors and family. I started working in a child care center at 17 and have been in a center ever since. I have 20 years of experience in the child education field and plan on having many more years to come.
During my free time, I enjoy shopping, cleaning, listening to music, and spending lots of time outdoors. I enjoy going on long walks and camping with my daughter and boyfriend and being around friends and family.
I graduated from Indian Hills Community College in August of 2002 with an Associates Degree in Early Childhood.
I started babysitting when I was 13 years old. I would babysit for families in the neighborhood. After graduating from college, I started working in daycare centers throughout Madison.
In my free time I enjoy going to sporting events. I’m a huge Wisconsin Badgers fan. I also enjoy cheering on the Packers. I spend most of my time with my husband.

I graduated in 2017 from Utah State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a minor in English Language Arts. I am currently working on courses with the Childcare Education Institute to further my education in early childhood and infant care.
After receiving my degree, I taught 5th grade for four years in a public elementary school. Prior to teaching full time, I worked as a paraprofessional in a kindergarten classroom. Though my interest in education and child development first started as a teenager, while babysitting for many families in my neighborhood, as well as caring for my four younger siblings.
In my free time I love to read, watch movies, and go hiking with my husband.
I graduated from Abundant Life Christian School in 2015
My mom had an in-home daycre for most of my childhood so I have been around kids for most of my life. I worked at Campus for Kids for 5-1/2 years.
I love Jesus, people, and Laughing. In 2018 I went on a missons trip through YWAM and stayed in Switzerland and Lebanon for 5 months. In my free time I love doing activites through my church, crocheting, and hanging out with my niece.
