My husband and I moved to Jackson from Nebraska, but we are both originally from Michigan and still have family there. We live with our two cats, Milo and Jay, and dog Atticus. In my free time, I enjoy running, walks with Atticus, reading or listening to audiobooks, watching new shows on Netflix, and spending time outdoors on trails or in the garden! I mostly spend time grading papers, though.

Favorite Bible Verse:

Psalm 73:26

My heart and my flesh may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Why send students to Living Word?

One of the reasons I joined the staff at LW is the intentional atmosphere of community and growth. LW holds students to a high standard, but does so with grace and compassion. Our foundation rests in our shared Christian faith, which drives our relationship and instruction for a higher purpose. When we have a common goal to educate and prepare these kids, it is evident in how we seek to provide opportunity and guidance. Your kid is not just another seat in a classroom and teachers aren't here for the paycheck. They go above and beyond to foster healthy relationships and encourage growth in all aspects of a child's life.
