I earned my Associate's and Bachelor's Degrees in Spanish from Indiana University Northwest with minors in Psychology and Communications. I then returned to school and earned my Master's Degree in Secondary Education. I have taught at Duneland for 8 years. Prior to returning to teach, I sold diamonds and jewelry and earned my certifications in Diamontology and Gemology through the Diamond Council of America. I have covered several maternity leaves and substitute taught at many schools in Lake and Porter Counties at some point over the last 13 years. I enjoy helping the next generation achieve their educational goals.

I love music, exercise, culture, jewelry, friends and family, and so much more!
