I grew up on a farm in central Iowa, and have also lived in Kansas and Nebraska. I have been teaching for almost 30 years; the past 13 years at Queens. I feel blessed to have a job that I love. My passions include spending time with my 3 daughters, enjoying the company of friends, cheering for my favorite sports teams (Iowa Hawkeyes and Detroit Tigers), traveling, riding my bike, walking, and reading.
