About Me

    I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in December 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Inclusive Early Childhood Education (Birth-3rd Grade)! I taught one semester of preschool in Lincoln followed by a year of kindergarten in Lincoln and a year of kindergarten in Rock Valley before beginning my journey at Boyden-Hull in 2018. I live in Boyden with my husband, Nathan, and our son, Lawson. Nathan coaches the Boyden-Hull Comets Girls' Basketball Team, so we love attending Comets & Nighthawks events. We also LOVE the Huskers (GO BIG RED!) and spending time with our families. I like to cook, watch movies, and hang out with people I love. I make lots of mistakes, but I'm thankful for grace, and I believe that loving and serving others and intentional gratefulness make life a whole lot brighter, so I'm trying to grow in those aspects of my life and can't wait to see how this year changes me! I'm looking forward to an awesome year!
