Educational Background: I grew up in Mason City, IA, which is where I currently live with my husband and 2 children. I attended college at the University of Iowa and received my Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Communication Studies and Art. After graduation from Iowa I worked in the travel industry for 12 years until I decided that teaching is what my true passion is. I set a goal to get into the classroom and I received my post-baccalaureate teaching certificate from Buena Vista University. During my time at Buena Vista I was able to spend time in many classroom across Northern Iowa including West Fork Middle School. I student taught at Newman Middle School in Mason City and Osage Middle and High School.
Interest / Hobbies:My family and I are avid Hawkeye Fans and love cheering on the Hawkeyes year round!
Why I am excited to be joining the staff at West Fork: I am excited to begin my teaching career at West Fork High School and work with the wonderful students and staff.
