Why Whitewater?

Over 16 years ago, I chose to teach and live in Whitewater because my future husband had a job as a math teacher at WHS. I was lucky to also get a job at the high school three months before we were married and we have been here since.

I love living in Whitewater because of the small town atmosphere. I am proud to raise my daughters in a town that we can call home.


I am in my 18th year of teaching at Whitewater High School. I graduated from UW-Eau Claire in May of 1999 with a degree in Special Education and received my masters in Professional Development from UW-LaCrosse in May of 2007.  At the end of July 2013, I received my reading licensure from UW-Whitewater.

My husband John and I have two daughters. Ella is 13 years old and is an eight grader at the middle school. Emilia is 10 years old and is in fifth grade at Washington Elementary.

Along with teaching, I am the student council advisor, senior class co-advisor, and the department head for the special ed department.

In my free time, I enjoy attending my daughters extra curricular activities, reading, running, and traveling with my family.
