I am originally from Milton, Wisconsin and attended UW-Whitewater for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I feel Whitewater is a great place to raise a family so I decided to find a teaching position here. Washington has so much positive energy and I truly feel privileged to be part of it.

I am going into my 26th year of teaching and loving it. I have taught 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades here in the Whitewater School District. I have also taught K-8th grade art in another district. Having my Masters in reading has enriched my teaching and I look forward to the challenges of increasing each student's potential in all subject areas.
My family keeps me very busy. My four children were named after the color green, my husband's favorite color. My daughter, Sage, is a senior at Whitewater High School and my son, Slate, is a sophomore. I have 2 older Sons, Hunter, who is a Senior at UW-Whitewater and Forrest, who is a Junior at Carthage College. Our dog, a Miniature Dachshund, has also been given a green name, Olive. My husband, Tom, is very supportive and owns a business in the Whitewater Community.
