I grew up in Columbia and graduated from the University of Missouri in 2004. My husband and I moved to Southern Boone where we begun to raise our two children. I have entered my 5th school year at Southern Boone Primary, and have worked with children and families for over 20 years. I am passionate about partnering with families to help grow their knowledge of early childhood development. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I have been working in the Southern Boone School District since 2010 as a Parent Educator for Parents as Teachers. Prior to my work in PAT I worked as a Special Education Paraprofessional for 3 years. I enjoy being able to work one on one with families who have very young children. I am very thankful for the community's ongoing support of the Parents as Teachers program.
