I started teaching in 2012. My first year at Thornapple Kellogg High School was in 2017. I attended Grand Valley State University where I majored in Mathematics with a secondary education emphasis and minored in Biology. I married my husband, James in 2015 and we welcomed our daughter, Abby in March 2017. I am the youngest of five and I am very close to my family. One of my favorite things to do during the summer is camping with my family.
