I have a BS in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois. After graduation, however, I worked for 12 years at Ball Horticultural in Customer Service and Product Management. It is there that I cultivated a love of gardening and bring to the preschool and church that talent.
I started working as an assistant teacher at Good Shepherd Lutheran Preschool in 2007 when my son was 3 and enrolled here. Ever since, I have enjoyed working in the 3-4 year-old classroom. I have been a member of Good Shepherd Church since 1995. I married Scott here in 1998 and baptized both my kids here. It is such a warm and friendly place. I have been teaching Kindergarten Sunday school (Sparks) since 2006 when my daughter was in Kindergarten. In my free time, I enjoy reading, Zumba and gardening. My favorite color is purple.
