I was born and raised in Champaign, Illinois. After graduating high school, I went to college at Northern Michigan University and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Biology and a Post-Baccalaureate degree in Clinical Lab Science. For the past 17years I have worked as a Clinical Lab Scientist in the lab at Aspirus. The things that I have learned there will be highlighted in my work daily with our children. I am beyond excited for this new adventure and I am very much looking forward to educating our youth. I am married to my husband Grant, and have two children Kyla-13/8th grade, and Karter-10/5th grade. I love anything outdoors-Camping, fishing, and boating. I’m a big-time sports lover!! Fighting Illini Basketball and Green Bay Packers football- just to name a few! I also enjoy watching my children play football, basketball, and volleyball! Go Wykons!!
