I grew up in Chicago, IL but have lived in Lincoln for the last ten years. My husband, Andy, and I have three kids. Alex is a freshman at Southwest High School. Kate is a seventh grader at Scott Middle School. Ben is a fifth grader at Cavett. We enjoy sports (playing and watching), traveling and playing family games together.
I was a stay-at-home mom for ten years before getting back into education. I enjoy working with kids and find my job as a special ed para very rewarding!
We attend Southwood Lutheran church. We have taken three mission trips to Honduras with them.
I volunteer at Center For People In Need.
My husband and I are foster parents and are deeply committed to Cedars.
