I am a Grand Valley State University graduate. I grew up in the UP in a very small, but beautiful town right on Lake Superior. After graduating from Grand Valley and living and working in Grand Rapids, I yearned for a small town atmosphere. My husband, Durk, and I moved to Middleville in 2003. I am a mother of 4 children (Zack a 2011 TK graduate, Ashley a sophomore, Carly a freshman and Drake a 6th grader), where the 3 younger keep me running from one sporting event to another all months of the year. In 2015, I began working at Page as the math interventionist. With my job, I work in every classroom and offer before and after school extra math for our students. I love the aha moments with understanding math and the confidence that comes with it.
