I am currently entering my 5th year with Springfield Platteview Community Schools. I teach Physical Education for 7th grade, 8th grade, and high school students. I also teach health for 8th grade and 10th grade. I proudly work with both Platteview Central students and Platteview High School students.

I also Co-Lead along side Chris Stier for Platteview High School Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 



Bio

I am orignally from Omaha Nebraska where I attended Millard West High School. From there I went to Wayne State College for 4 years and competed in both soccer and track and field. I am a two time All-American in track and field in NCAA Divison 2, and a 4 time national qualifier. I was selected to the All-Conference team 6 times in track and field and once in soccer. I was also very honored and blessed to serve as a team captain for both soccer and track and field while at Wayne State. 

After Wayne State I subsitute taught for 1 year in Gretna, and also worked as a certified personal trainer for 1 year at 24 Hour Fitness. While getting my certification as a personal trainer I learned a lot about evaluating health, fitness, and lifestyle choices. It gave me a great background of extra knowledge to apply to Physical Education and my Health classes.

I have been involved in Fellowship of Christian athletes now for over 10 years, and my faith is such an important and vital part of who I am and what I pour into the students. I have been a serving as FCA lead for 4 years now at Platteview High School.

I have been married for 3 years to my wonderful husband Tyler (who also helps with Fellowship of Christian athletes). We have one beautiful daughter named Jocelyn who is 2 years old. My hobbies I enjoy going to the mountains and snowboarding, hiking, and trail running. I use most of my spare time doing community activities, church activities, and running.
