I grew up on a farm outside of Dike, Iowa. I attended Covenant Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology in 1993. I worked as a Radiologic Technologist and Radiology Manager for many years at Iowa Specialty Hospital in Clarion, Iowa. After moving to Nevada I was a stay at home mom.
I joined the Central Elementary staff as a Certified Paraeducator in 2011 and work in the Preschool classroom. I currently live in Nevada with my husband Dan and children Nathaniel and Caitlin. In my free time I enjoy traveling, reading and spending time with my family.
