I was born in El Paso, TX, but grew up in Beaver Dam, WI. I attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, where I met my husband Don (born and raised in Phoenix). After we graduated college and were married, we lived in Torrance, CA, for 2 years and then were teachers in Plzen, Czech Republic for 2 years. We moved to Vero Beach in 2007 and have been blessed with 3 awesome children: Phineas (11), Dashel (8), and Esme (4).
I have my B.S. in Staff Ministry and my Staff and Director’s Credential. I started teaching at Gracie’s Preschool in 2009 and has been associated with the preschool since then (although not always in a teaching role). In 2018, I was called to be the Preschool Director and feel very blessed to serve in this way!
