I was born and raised in St. Louis, and moved to Kansas City in 2013. I graduated from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri in 1998; earned a Master's Degree from National Louis University in 2002; completed certification in gifted education in 2004; and finished my doctorate at Lindenwood University in 2012.
I have spent most of my years at the elementary level teaching third, fifth, sixth grades and gifted students. Because I love math, I founded a hands-on math center which taught kids to learn to love math and showed them how math works which was the focus of my doctoral study.
I love working with gifted students and am happy to be a member of the Grandview C4 Team!
