While I was born in Elgin, Illinois, I spent most of my childhood living in Lombard as the youngest of five children. I attended St. Paul Bible College in Minnesota, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.
My first five years of teaching experience was in Special Education. I received my Montessori certification from Meca Seton and have over 22 years of Montessori classroom experience at Mansio.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, scrapbooking, and traveling whenever I get the opportunity. My children and I reside in Geneva.
