I grew up in Manistee and graduated from MHS in 2004. After high school I attended Central Michigan University where I graduated with my Bachelor's in Secondary Education. I decided that I had enough of the Michigan winters, so I moved to Virginia where I taught high school social studies for the last seven years.
I'm happy to be back in the area where I can go hiking, camping, and ice fishing (the only thing I missed about winter). I also like to read and travel in my spare time. In the past seven years I have travelled to Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Florence, and Ireland. I'm looking forward to a great year!
