After graduating from the University of Northern Iowa, I began my education career right here in the Waukee Community School District in 2002. I taught for a total of four years, first at Waukee Elementary and then Walnut Hills Elementary. I received my MSE in Education Leadership from Drake University in 2006. I then served as the assistant principal at both Waukee Elementary and Walnut Hills Elementary for two years before becoming the principal at Waukee Elementary in 2008. I completed my EdS in Educational Administration at Drake University in 2014 and continue to enjoy my role at Waukee Elementary!
Living and working in the district gives me a great sense of pride. My husband also works in the district and we are very thankful to be part of this great community! My son is a 12th grader at Waukee High School and my daughter is a 6th grader at Waukee Middle School. I also have two step-children who are in 6th grade and 8th grade.
