She has been a foster mom for 6 years and has had numerous children in her home and has been blessed with the opportunity to be the adoptive momma to two sweet boys Gabriel, who is 6, and Logan, who is 5. Gabriel entered Kindergarten and Logan entered Pre-K this school year. 

She is a graduate of Purdue University with her Bachelor's in Elementary Education in 2009. And most recently, she will hold a Master's degree in special education from Purdue University in the fall. She is overjoyed to want to continue her education into a doctorate program in the next 5 years,

Happy Learning!
