picI grew up on a farm west of WaKeeney and graduated from Trego Community High School in 1998. I attended Fort Hays State University and graduated in 2002 with my bachelor's degree. I began my career in education at Cheney High School as a physical science and physics teacher for one year, then moved to Hillsboro after getting married. I taught nearby at Canton-Galva for three years while working on my school counseling degree at Emporia State University. I became the K-8 school counselor at the grade school in Ellis in 2006. I am now in my 3rd year as the 7-12 counselor at Ellis Junior/Senior High School. I love working with students and helping them navigate through junior high and high school and beyond. I have been married for 15 years to Matt and we have two boys, Austin and Ethan.
