About Me

I was born and raised in Middletown, New Jersey where I spent my summers swimming in the ocean and playing on the beach with my older brother, Tim. I moved to Dubuque, Iowa at the end of my 6th grade year and have loved living in the midwest. After graduating from Hempstead High School, I moved to Iowa City and became a Hawkeye.

After graduating from Iowa, I moved west to Lincoln, Nebraska and taught fourth grade for two years. It was extremely hard being the only Hawkeye fan in a sea of Nebraska red, but it was a great experience nonetheless. Although I loved my job, the staff, and the students, I wanted to get back to Eastern Iowa and be closer to family and friends.

My husband Chad and I live in Bettendorf and love to spend time watching baseball, going for walks, and playing with our dog Babe. We have a beautiful baby girl named Charlotte and love spending time with her and watching her grow. She is growing so fast! This will be our 2nd year teaching and coaching in Pleasant Valley and we love the community in which we live and teach. Chad teaches 6th grade and Riverdale Heights and coaches 7th grade Football and Varsity Baseball. I coach cheerleading at the Junior High.

Go Spartans!!!!
