    BIO

    As an alumnus of Mississinewa Community Schools, I take very seriously the importance of being the first impression for Mississinewa Community Schools. I am driven, dedicated, positive and known for my smile. I look forward to making connections and building relationships with our school family. I received my undergraduate degree in early childhood education from Indiana University. I also received a Master’s degree from Ball State University in elementary education with a focus in early childhood education. I then went on to complete the Principal Licensure Program at Indiana Wesleyan University to become a P-12 Building Level Administrator. I am married to my husband Brian, who is also a Mississinewa graduate. We have two daughters, Kamryn and Katie. We love spending time watching our girls who are involved in many academic and athletic events. In my free time, I enjoy vacations with my family, volunteering at church, and spending time with friends and family.
