About Me

Teaching has always been my passion! I was encouraged to pursue engineering, but chose to major in math education and have never regretted this decision. I have lived in New Lenox for over 30 years; both of my children attended NLSD schools and LWC high school.

My husband and I LOVE to travel! In addition to our many domestic vacations, internationally we have been to Jamaica, Mexico, Aruba, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and Paris. Like so many others we have missed not having a chance to travel this summer! When not traveling I enjoy reading and being outdoors: walking, running, biking, and single track mountain biking.

A Time to Kill (John Grisham) or Stories I Only Tell my Friends (Rob Lowe)
