    Image result for welcome I am a high school graduate from Columbus, Montana. I attended Northwest Community College on a basketball scholarship upon graduation. I then transferred to MSU-Billings and pursued a degree in English Secondary Education extended. I graduated in 2012 and began teaching in Sidney the following fall. In February of 2020, I obtained my Masters in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum and English from Colorado State University-Global Campus.  

    I am married to my husband, Levi, a Sidney native and high school pole-vaulting coach. We have a beautiful daughter together, Lydia, and five fur-babies, two dogs, and three cats. We enjoy being outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and camping. We also enjoy watching movies/shows and football.
