I am serving my first year on the Hilltop Board as a parent member. I have a daughter, Addie, who is currently in the Tree Frog Room, and a boy, Noah, who will start at Hilltop in August. I became a board member with the hope of providing support in any way I could to make sure our children have the best possible early childhood education. Research shows these are the most important educational years of a child's life.
I am a social studies teacher at Shawnee Heights High School, teaching AP Human Geography and World History. I am also the head boy's basketball coach. We won the 2017 state championship! Along with those duties, I am also a real estate agent with Stephens Real Estate in Lawrence.
I received my bachelor's in secondary education-social studies and my master's in physical education-sports studies from the University of Kansas.
On the board I serve on Finance Committee which helps with budget and auditing.
