I have taught at Williams Bay Elementary since 1996. I taught primary grades in District 15, Palatine, Illinois, before my daughters were born. At Williams Bay Elementary School I have taught both 5th and 6th grade. I grew up in Arlington Heights, Illinois. I have an Elementary Education degree from Western Illinois University and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Supervision from Northern Illinois University.
I live in Williams Bay. My daughters are graduates of Williams Bay High School. My older daughter, Mackenzie, graduated from UW-Madison in 2009. She lives and works in Madison. My younger daughter, Megan, is employed by Big Foot Area Schools as a speech pathologist. My step-son, Scott, lives in Western Springs with his wife and three children. My step-daughter Kelly lives in South Elgin with her husband and son.
I have been an active member of Williams Bay Women’s Civic League for over 20 years. I enjoy reading and walking the lakeshore path.
