My background includes 15 years of experience as a certified and state licensed athletic trainer (the person that runs on the field and takes care of athletic injuries among other things). I worked for 5 years as an athletic trainer and then started working for District 150. Currently, I teach at RHS and I am the speech coach. I still work as an athletic trainer for Midwest Orthopedics in Peoria. I teach Med Term at ICC one night per week. I went to Iowa State for my B.S. in Exercise Science: Athletic Training; Illinois State for a M.S. in Kiniesiology; and Olivet for a M.A. in Teaching. I also minored in Sociology at Iowa State for fun and have taught it at RHS and also incorporate it into my other courses. In my spare time, I am on the Board of Directors for Foster Pet Outreach and I am active in animal rescue. I've fostered more and adopted out more than 300 dogs to date. In 2018, I was honored to be selected as one of the "40 Under 40." My dogs are also certified therapy dogs and visit local nursing homes, libraries, schools, etc... I also run for "fun" with my pitbull Mahoney. I have one child, a fourth grader named Shai that attends Northmoor Primary School.
