On a professional note

Why Whitefield:
Whitefield is an answered prayer. After being out of the classroom as a stay-at-home mom for five years, the Lord began calling me back to work with students. The way every detail has lined up along the way is nothing short of His working and He gets all the glory. I am so thankful to be a part of Whitefield.

Why I love my job:
Science became my favorite subject when I was in 7th grade and used a microscope for the first time that I can remember. Since then I have been passionate about discovering the intricacies of God's miraculous creation. Children are naturally curious, and I love helping students with hands-on investigations to find answers to their questions.

On a personal note

My family:
My husband, Jay, and I have been married since 2007 and we have two wonderful, young children, Thea and Emmett.
