I was born and raised in Bountiful, Utah. I am the third of four girls. I went to college at Utah State University, lived in the Avenues of Salt Lake while first married and student teaching, put roots down in Bountiful for nearly ten years, then moved to Syracuse for more space. I have been married for sixteen years. Matt and I have three children - currently in 8th, 6th, and 3rd grades. We have a dog, two cats, and a coop full of chickens - that pull us out into the backyard each night.
I love to garden, and start the majority of my plants from seeds under indoor lights. I love to camp, and have deemed a corner in our camper as my happy place. I love to travel, and always make sure to include local food and music into the plans! I also love to browse the shelves of a bookstore, and admit my inability to leave the children and young adult sections empty-handed!
This is my seventh year teaching. I taught Kindergarten and First Grades in the Granite School District, for a combined three years before staying home while my children were babies. I have taught Second and now Third, here at Voyage Academy. I have loved my experiences in the lower grades, and look forward to what our Crew will learn together this year.
