About Me

Educational History:

I am a transplanted Iowa farm kid who moved to Beeville after graduating from college. I taught history, physical education and coached in Beeville ISD for 16 years before moving on to work in higher education. I spent 12 years studying sport pedagogy, teaching activity classes and secondary teaching methods lab, conducting research, and supervising student teachers at Texas A&M University. I then returned to Beeville to serve as Coastal Bend College’s Head Women’s Basketball coach and Adjunct Kinesiology instructor. I returned to BISD in 2016.

Upon returning to Beeville, I joined Coastal Bend College as the inaugural Head Women’s Basketball Coach. I also taught kinesiology courses on the Kingsville and Alice CBC campuses.

Family Information:

I am the youngest of three children. Our family has a family farm operation in Iowa. My 90 year-old mother is still self-sufficient and politically active. My dog, Bella, is a 4 year-old huskie-shepard mix who is afraid of loud noises and snow.

Personal Information:

Coming from a farming background, I enjoy gardening and yard work. Tomatoes are my favorite “crop” to grow.
