I was born and raised in southern Indiana. I attended Indiana University and received my bachelors in Social Work. After moving to Utah, I worked in early intervention, taught preschool and was a substitute teacher before returning to Utah State University to receive my second bachelors in Special Education. I LOVE teaching children and watching their excitement about learning! I am a BUSY mother of 6 children, 3 boys and 3 girls ranging from 20 to 5 years old! I delight in playing with my kids and investing in their lives. I am always up for a new adventure and can often be found right along side my kids exploring new things!
