I have traveled to 10 different countries.

I am left-handed, but play sports right-handed.

I love to try out new recipes.

"If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we must teach in a way the child can learn." -Dr. O. Ivar Lovaas


I love to see the progress that our kids make. It is so rewarding to see a child master a new skill and know that I am a part of helping them reach their full potential. It is so fun working with the most adorable children and no two days are ever the same!

I enjoy spending time with my family. We love to go for walks and enjoy the outdoors. I also love baking, traveling, and relaxing at our family cabin up north.
