I attended grades K-12 in Eureka, Kansas and graduated as a Tornado. After graduating from Kansas State University in Secondary Education I accepted my first teaching position at Frederic Remington High School where I taught students in Journalism I, Photography, Newspaper Production, Yearbook, and Junior English while coaching football, basketball, and track. I later became the Athletic Director at RHS after the tragic passing of Larry Brown.

In 2006, I completed my Master of Arts in Building Leadership through Baker University and accepted the Assistant Principal and Activities Director position at Eureka Jr/Sr High School. In 2007, I accepted the position of Principal at Eureka Jr/Sr High School where I was also the Activities Director from August 2011 to June 2013.

In August 2013 I accepted the position of Principal at Flinthills High School in Rosalia where I was also the Athletic Director for grades 7-12. In 2017 I completed my District Level Licensure for Leadership through Newman University.
