About Me...

My road to Lincoln Southwest High is a long one, but entertaining! I grew up here in Lincoln, Nebraska, where I attended Goodrich Jr. High and Lincoln High School. Originally I had envisioned myself performing on Broadway, but at the University of Nebraska I had a change of heart... I soon transfered from the fine and performing arts college to the the liberal arts college where I received degrees in both English and History.

Following a short stint as a Lincoln Police Officer I went back to school and entered into an accelerated masters program where I received both my teaching certification as well as a Masters Degree in Secondary Teaching (MST).

In my spare time I like to go camping with my dogs (2 Weimeraners), work on my house, and serve as an adviser to the Beta Theta Pi house on the UNL campus...
