They lived in Des Moines until 2007, where she worked in the Food and Beverage industry. After moving back to the Quad Cities, she took the required coursework to begin working as a substitute teacher. This is when she discovered her love for being in the classroom. She was blessed with her first daughter, Madeline, in 2009. Shortly after, she decided to return to school to obtain her Elementary and Middle Level Education Degree, which she completed in 2012. She was blessed with her second daughter, Elaina, a month before she finished her degree. She thanks God for leading her on the path toward working at Trinity. There is no place she'd rather be!
