About: I've been Washington’s Physical Education teacher since 2013. My journey at Washington began in the winter of 2011, as a Special Programs Instructional Assistant. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with a Bachelor’s in Physical Education and a double minor- Health Education and Adapted Physical Education. In addition to teaching, I coach the Washington Running Club and Washington Track Team. I nurture the importance of a positive elementary experience that provides a fun, active and knowledgeable learning experience for your child. North Carolina has been my home since 2010. My kids have paws :) I have a cat named Superman and a dog named Barrett. I am also an auntie to three amazing young ladies and 3 awesome nephews who inspire me with their creativity and "spunkiness". I enjoy staying active by stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, and gardening. In addition, I love watching sports, especially the Green Bay Packers.
