I married Steve and had four beautiful daughters. Brittany, Abbey, Victoria, and Mikayla. As my family developed, I invested each day in the nurture and care of my children. I observed, first hand, the stages of the developing mind of a child. I actively participated in introducing new concepts and supporting the intellectual and social growth of my children. Assisting children to learn became my passion. When Mikayla started kindergarten in 2002, I was given the opportunity to develop these gifts and talents in the kindergarten classroom at Rockwell Elementary School. Through this experience, I know that my calling in life is to facilitate the learning of young children.
In 2006, I returned to school and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Education.
