I am a 20+ year educator of children and college students and love being able to interact with and teach both age groups as part of my position. In my past lives, I've taught preschool, elementary school, special education, and high school art. I've also been a literacy coach, and was Coordinator of Elementary/Early Childhood Education at Baker College in Cadillac for several years before coming to GRCC 2014. I truly enjoy working with such talented, knowledgeable, and passionate early childhood professionals and the college students in our program.
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time at our beautiful farm near Traverse City and traveling. As a northern Michigan native, I love being outdoors: hiking, downhill skiing, and spending time on Lake Michigan's beautiful beaches.
