I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree with an English major and Elementary Education minor from Grand Valley State University in 2005. I then continued my educational career at Grand Valley earning my Master Degree in Education (Reading) in 2008. I’ve worked with elementary and secondary students, as well as served as a Literacy Coach and Reading Specialist in a K-12 setting. I love working in higher education and I love GRCC. It is such a pleasure to come to work everyday to work and interact with students, collaborate with colleagues, and get involved on campus.
In addition to my professional career at GRCC, I also volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, take and teach dances in urban ballroom, tap, jazz, and hip-hop, serve on numerous committees and participate in a wide variety of outreach activities within the community.
