Fun facts: My husband Jeff and I have two sons: an extremely adorable and inquisitive 9-year-old named Samuel and an equally adorable 6-year-old named Matthew. My son Sam was born with a vision impairment and uses Braille and a cane to navigate his world. Viewing the world through his lens has helped me realize we all have challenges in our life and that we are ALL capable of overcoming them. I am the oldest of 5 girls and enjoy running, traveling, cooking, and reading. I have run nine marathons and and hope to do one in every state by the time I am 65.  I also enjoy competing in triathlons and crazy events like the Tough Mudder. I'll never win one of these events but love pushing myself to see what I am capable of!

What I love about CSB/SJU: I'm constantly impressed with our student's willingness to travel and explore new cultures. I learn so much about the world just by talking with them!
