I'm an intervention specialist. I'll be helping students with their core classes as well as supporting students with their IEP goals. I have 3 kids (7,11, and 14) and my husband teaches at Pickerington North. I'm originally from Cincinnati, Ohio but have lived in Columbus for 20 years. I have been teaching for 19 years. I'm a huge sports fan, I enjoy playing soccer, love being outdoors, and enjoy spending time with family. I'm looking forward to having an amazing school year!


I have always wanted to be a teacher! I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2001 with a degree in Special Education k-12. I continued to further my education and received my masters from Marygrove College in the Art of Teaching. After my masters, I have continued taking classes to further my education and learn new and inventive ways to educate all my students.
