Welcome!

I am thrilled to be starting the 2017-2018 school year as a part of the awesome team at UMS!

A resident of USD for almost 20 years with my husband and two daughters, I was a UMS parent before I joined the staff as a teacher four years ago. Our daughters are graduates of both Noddin and UMS! One starts college this fall and the other will be a sophomore at Leigh.
