I was born in Wichita and attended OK Elementary, Hadley Middle School, and North High School. I am a 2001 graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder and a 2004 graduate of Emporia State University.
B.A., Engish Literature
M.L.S. Library Science / School Library Media
This is my 5th year as a school librarian and my first at Explorer! Prior to that, I spent 10 years as a children’s librarian in public libraries in both Park City, KS. and San Diego, CA.
I am married to a pretty awesome guy, Chris, and have two equally awesome kids. Hailey is a 6th grader and Isaac is a 3rd grader. We all like to travel pretty much anywhere, but our favorites are snow-skiing, the lake, and Disney! I also have a dog named Casey. She is 100 in dog years and just likes to eat and sleep all day.
I love the beach, reading, cooking, online shopping, movies, theater, and spending time with my family and friends.
