I grew up in the Novi area with my large family of six. I attended Grand Valley State University where I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with a Social Studies Endorsement. I live an active lifestyle, frequently training for running events and teaching ballet. I am an avid, self-proclaimed, chef and lover of dogs. Hoping to own my own puppy soon! This is my first year teaching in Troy School District. This year, I will be teaching first grade at Costello Elementary. I have a passion for learning and helping students develop as lifelong learners!
