Hello! I have been teaching at Auburn Middle School since 2013. Helping others reach above and beyond their potential has been my passion since I was young. Becoming a teacher has enabled me to help others grow each and every day, which I couldn’t be more excited about!

My husband, Shawn, and I were married in June of 2011 and moved to Auburn in the summer of 2013. We have a little boy, Cameron, and two cats, Brody and Gizmo, that provide us with plenty of entertainment.
I grew up on a farm outside of St. Edward, Nebraska, where my dad farms and my mom teaches Family & Consumer Sciences. I have an older brother who lives in Kansas City, MO and an older sister who lives in Coleridge, NE and has three little boys. My family is very important to me and I love Facetiming with my nephews!
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy volunteering, traveling, running, and playing the piano and violin. I am an active member of the Launch Leadership Volunteer Staff and P.E.O. I’ve traveled all across the United States and throughout Europe, but it’s always nice to return home to Nebraska.
