"I grew up in Topeka and attended Our Lady of Guadalupe Elementary School and then Topeka High. I then pursued two degrees at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, where I majored in Sociology and Communications with an emphasis in media management. After the birth of my oldest son, Sage, we moved to Santa Maria, California, where I was a stay-at-home mom for a number of years after having my other three children, Luke, Hope, and Faith. In 2005, after a lot of research, we moved to the Shawnee Heights district when I determined this was the best district for my family. I have not been disappointed. I have been involved in the district since moving back home. I have served as Secretary, PTO President twice, PTO VP twice, Carnival Chair for 10 years, and Site Council at SHES. I have served on Site Council at SHMS and High School for 9 years and helped start the SHHS Boy's Swim Team and the SHMS Dance Team. I also served on the Board for the SHHS Boy's Soccer Team. I love being a part of the Shawnee Heights family.
I serve on the Shawnee Heights Public Schools Board of Education because I have always wanted to give back to the district in a greater capacity. I have always wanted to make a difference, to learn and listen to patrons in our district, and to provide excellent educational opportunities for our students and continued support for the best teachers in our state."
