I grew up about two hours north of Marion and lived there until I moved south for college. I’m a wife and a mother to two girls. I teach high school business classes by day, parent by night, and have a side-gig as a photographer on the weekends. I went to SIU and got my Bachelor’s Degree focusing on Business Education with a minor in Business Administration. I have been teaching for the past 10 years in Southern Illinois. However, one of those years I taught in Indiana. I love volunteering at church and have spent many hours caring for the babies and kids in Little City. You can also find me volunteering as a section host on weeks I’m not in Little City. I now reside in Herrin with my family, including two dogs.
