Growing up, I had the privilege of attending and graduating from Lynden Christian High School.  Following this, I attended and graduated from Calvin College in 2009 with a degree in Secondary Education, History, and a minor in Spanish.  I met my husband, Brad, at Calvin and we married in the summer of 2011.  My first teaching job was at Sunnyside Christian High School where I taught high school Social Studies for five years.
My husband and I have a deep love of travel, so we then decided to take a year to live abroad and travel.  We landed in Sydney, Australia where we lived and worked while also traveling to China, Thailand, and New Zealand.  Shortly thereafter, we moved to Lynden and our first daughter, Evie, was born in 2015 followed by our second daughter, Cora, in 2017.
I have “officially” been a teacher again at Lynden Christian since 2020, but served in various roles in short term and long term subbing and coaching volleyball since 2015.  I have been thrilled to be back doing what I love and sharing my passion for history and the world.
