I am very excited to be working with our 7th grade students! I have been working in the classroom at Assumption since 2007. In addition to being the homeroom teacher, I teach 5th- 8th grade science  and 7th grade religion. My goal is to make science fun and interesting with hands-on experiments. I believe children learn by asking questions and investigating ways to problem solve. Through participation, I am hoping the students will gain positive attitudes towards science that will carry through their life.

I come to teaching after almost a decade in a successful career in pharmaceutical sales. After a couple life-changing experiences, I returned to school to become a teacher. My 3 children attended Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary from K-8th grade. They were very well prepared for the challenges of high school and for college.

In my spare time I enjoy running, reading and playing with our German Shepard-Duke. My husband Chris and I enjoy traveling and spending time in the desert.

I have a great passion for teaching and look forward to continue working with the students at Assumption School.
