I grew up in Cloverdale, Indiana, a very small town near Terre Haute. I graduated from Ball State University in 1994 with degrees in Deaf Education and Mild Disabilities. I obtained my Master's Degree in Education from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2002. I have been teaching for 15 years, 10 of those years in Carmel.
I have 2 children that also attend Carmel Clay Schools. I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Lexi and 2 cats, Rocket and Jett. In my free time I like to scrapbook, read and watch my children at their various activities. I love football! I love to go to Notre Dame games and attend Colts games.
