I was born and raised in Lincoln and am a proud graduate of Lincoln High School. I attended and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I have a Master's Degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University.
When I am not at school I am spending time with my family and friends. I love teaching and learning with students and have been able do that at North Star since it opened. Go Navigators!
