Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from College of the Ozarks in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in psychology.
In 2017 I completed the Elementary Education program at Missouri State University and received my teaching certification for grades 1-6.
Family and Personal History:
My family and I have lived in Ozark for the last 5 years. My husband Ryan and I have been together since high school and we have two kids together, Mackenzie and Easton. Both of my kids attend Ozark East Elementary. I spent 10 years working as a social worker for the State of Missouri before obtaining my teaching certification and teaching fourth grade here at East Elementary. I grew up in Reeds Spring, which is where I graduated from high school. I then went on to College of the Ozarks. My family and I love camping, sports, swimming, and just about anything that gets us outside having fun! We are, of course, STL Cardinal fans and Dallas Cowboy fans (don't hold that against me). This will be a great fourth grade year!
