I am so excited to be serving the community in this new role! My husband Ben and I have two dragons that attend Walnut Grove, Palmer and Emma.

I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina and I love anything to do with the beach, boating, and fried green tomatoes. I also enjoy playing tennis and watching my daughters in ballet.
