I am fortunate to have had a long, varied career in public education. I taught Social Studies and English for ten years. I also spent ten years as a building-level administrator and eleven years as a central office administrator. I was also a soccer coach for many of those years.

Working in public education has introduced me to so many amazing people and provided me with incredible life experiences. I am honored to be at Trine and hope I am able to contribute in meaningful ways to enhance the education of our students. Being able to give back to the profession by helping shape its future is incredibly exciting and meaningful to me.
