I was born and raised just north of St. Paul, Minnesota. My love for reading did not strike until fourth grade when I was introduced to The Babysitter's Club books. Once I read all that the library had, I moved onto other genres and authors and never looked back. I knew in ninth grade that I wanted to be a teacher. I was fortunate to attend excellent public schools with highly qualified and caring teachers.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota and moved to Muscatine in the summer of 2004. I guest taught extensively in the Davenport and Muscatine schools until I was hired at Madison School in 2007.
