Hi! I am looking forward to my 4th year at Little Lambs. I was excited to join the Little Lambs staff after falling in love with the program while my two youngest children were preschoolers here. I am from Flossmoor, IL and graduated from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. My career has been in the child welfare and the children’s mental health field. I absolutely love working with children and pride myself on my patience, sense of humor and creativity in working with all children.

My husband, Brent, and I have 11 children ages 8-23. We formed our family through marriage, birth and adoption. We are active in our community and in the 428 school district. In our free time, we love to camp, travel, and play with our pets. I’m excited about a new school year with fresh faces, a few familiar ones, and new chances to watch children learn, grow and make connections to their worlds, families, and school.
