Originally from Cairo, Nebraska; came to Sterling College in 2001 and graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2005. Moved to Colorado Springs after graduation to teach 1st grade, but moved back the following year, because I missed Sterling. My husband and I lived on campus (where Eric was a Resident Director) until 2013 while I taught 2nd grade in Hutchinson from 2006-2012. In May of 2018 I graduated with my master’s as a Reading Specialist and have been a Sterling College Adjunct for the Education Department the last two years.


Although, I have a few years of teaching and education under my belt, I am most thankful for the years I have had to be home with my 4 children. Jaelynn is 8, Amalia and Eliana are 5, and Micah is 3. My three girls attended Faith Steps Preschool and we have been so blessed by the teachers and the Methodist Church family. I am looking forward to making my way back into the classroom, especially at Faith Steps Preschool.
