I was played and coached college basketball. I have taught Special Education and Physical Education in grades K-12. I earned 2 Masters degrees and am a National Board Certified Teacher. In addition to my teaching responsibilities in Chicago I also teach graduate level courses online. I love adventure and travel and have now visited 2 of the 7 wonders of the world. I love trying new things and being active; I have been skydiving, snow skiing, and dog sledding. I have white water rafted through the Grand Canyon, backpacked in Yosemite National Park, and love a good hike. I love doing anything that includes the outdoors, watching and playing sports, and photography. I love all things Chicago especially my Chicago sports teams, Cubs, Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks! I love my family and absolutely adore spending time with them!
