I grew up in New Jersey where I attended Eastern Christian School. I graduated from Calvin College in 1999 with a Biology Major, Chemistry Minor and a secondary education teaching certificate. After Calvin I attended graduate school from 1999-2001 at Purdue University’s School of Agriculture where I completed a Masters in Biochemical Genetics. I started teaching at Calvin Christian in 2015 after teaching at Purdue, Twin Lakes HS (Monticello, IN), West Ottawa HS and Holland Christian HS.
My husband Mike and I were married in 1999. We moved to Holland in 2003 to raise our children on his family’s farm. We have 3 children, Henry, Anna and Luke who attend Zeeland Christian School. We love spending time outside, especially any activity near or in a lake. We are members of Providence Church where I have been active in Women’s ministry, teaching Sunday School and Small Groups.
I love learning new things about Science and hope that excitement comes through in my classroom. As I learn more I am continually amazed by the detailed way God has created us and the world around us. In my classroom I strive to not only teach students Science but also how to take that knowledge and link it to our Biblical calling to be stewards of creation and our school mission of Loving, Learning and Serving.
