I received my high school education right here in Kansas at Basehor-Linwood High School, where I began the first ever Fellowship of Christian Athletes club that still thrives to this day. I then went to Nashville, Tennessee on a volleyball scholarship to Trevecca Nazarene University. I taught eight years as a seventh grade Language Arts teacher and also coached high school and middle school volleyball in Tennessee. After moving to Kansas I taught a year in Shawnee Mission as an eighth grade Language Arts teacher until we had our daughter. I then joyfully embraced my role as Mom and began volunteering in children’s ministry at our church. When our daughter went to first grade I then began substituting at her school. My best friend and partner in all that I accomplish is my husband of 24 years, Kerry, who although being a Floridian, willingly moved to Kansas for me. Our daughter, Grace, who truly is a gift we didn’t deserve, will be attending 11th grade at MCA this year. We attend Central Church of the Nazarene in Lenexa.
