I am married to an educator and we have two amazing children, Jesse--age 16, and Melia--age 14, both of whom attended Billy Mills. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from KU and a Master of Arts in Education from Avila University. I am certified to teach middle school Speech and Drama, ELA, and ESOL. I am an advocate for student equity and a proponent for AVID. I love reading, writing, collaborating to create theatrical productions, and, above all, spending time with my family.
