I was born in central Michigan and lived in Wolverine country until the age of ten. I attended South Vienna Elementary/Middle School and am a proud 1995 graduate of NEHS. I began the University of Toledo with the intention of becoming a physician, but at the end of my third year, I found a desire to become a teacher. I finished my degree in Secondary Education/Science in 2000 with a concentration on Biology and Chemistry. I was blessed with an opportunity to return to Northeastern School District after graduation to begin my career as an educator. My entire teaching career (outside of college education field experiences) has been spent as a teacher at Northeastern High School. I am currently working on my Master's degree in Educational Leadership with a Principalship focus at Wright State University. I have been the advisor for Quick Recall, a high school quiz team, since the team's creation in 2001, as well as volunteering as a baseball coach, basketball coach, and NEHS summer baseball coach. I also hold the head coaching position for our girls golf team.

I currently own a home in Springfield with Amber. We have been together since 2004 and were married in 2005 and have two interesting dogs; Austin (an energetic Jack Russell/Pug mix) and Brayden (a full-figured AKC English Black Lab), names we chose from a baby name book. In my free time, I enjoy watching and playing sports as well as spending as much time as possible with family and friends

I am a proud graduate of The Ohio State University with a Bachelors in Biology (Go Bucks!!!) and obtained my a Masters in Science Education from St. Joseph's University in Philly, PA in 2012. While education is my passion now, most of my flare came prior to teaching as I used to perform and train animals for the shows at Seaworld Orlando and the Columbus Zoo. Although I miss the animals some days, I am excited to be teaching students what I love.
I am new to the Northeastern School District as I moved with my 6 month old daughter, Alaina, and my Pomeranian, Tula. Prior to coming to Northeastern, I taught three years of Agricultural Education at Utica High School in Utica, OH. I am very proud to be Northeastern's FFA Co-Advisor this year and to start the 7th/8th VoAg grade program at SVMS as well as be able to teach Biology and Environmental Science at the NEHS.
