This is my 14th year teaching in Williams Bay. Previously, I had taught for two years in West Bend, but I have lived most of my life in the Metro Milwaukee area. I received my undergraduate degree from Mount Mary University in 1988, majoring in Spanish, Art, and History. Many years later, I returned to school to get my preK-12 certification in Spanish/Education. In 2007, I completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching through Aurora University. I enjoy teaching all the different levels of Spanish, and serve as the Spanish Club adviser and the coordinator of APEX and WVS online learning here. A resident of Williams Bay, I live with my husband of 27 years , Tom, a senior sales representative/product manager. We have one daughter, Julia, who graduated from the Bay in 2014. She is currently a junior at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. We share our home with a golden retriever named Shamrock, whom we consider part of our family.

Choosing to become an educator has been one of the best and most fulfilling decisions of my life. I am so grateful to be teaching in such a fine school district!
