Education: Northwest Missouri State University-B.S.Ed., M.S.Ed., Ed.S.

Experience: I began my career teaching fourth grade at Rushville Elementary in 1990. I also taught fifth and sixth grades before becoming principal in 1997.

Biography: I was raised in the country and went to elementary, middle and high school in Troy, KS. I attended NWMSU. I have been in the Buchanan County R-IV Schools since the beginning of my teaching career in 1990. I love my job and truly enjoy the faculty, staff, and students.

My husband, Travis, is the superintendant for the Buchanan County R-IV School District. We live in a home built in 1927 by my husband's great-great-grandfather. We have three girls: Mallory, Madison, and Macy. We also have an Australian Shepherd, Domino, and four cats. In my free time, I like to be with family and friends, work out, read a good book, and watch HGTV. We love to vacation at a beach each summer.
