I attended Luther College with a degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Special Education. I have taught middle school special education for five years in Iowa. I enjoy helping children of all ages. An interesting fact about me is that I have been to 44 of the 50 states and love to share my experiences.

I recently joined Sylvan in March 2012. I work with reading and math essential students as well as the ACT prep students. I am very excited to help make a difference in our students lives. I enjoy working with every student and helping them reach their goals. I am currently a junior at Eastern Illinois University majoring in secondary mathematics education with a middle level endorsement. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, going on walks, and going boating.
