I grew up in Maxwell and have lived in four other states over the past 32 years; we have recently relocated back here and are currently renovating a home in Cambridge, so a majority of my free time right now is spent working on that. My husband, Tim, and our son, Nick, are both ISU College of Engineering Alumni, go Cyclones! We have a black lab mix (rescue), Bullitt, who keeps me active with frequent walks. I have 20+ years of experience working in public schools. My favorite subject in junior high and high school was always English, so I am very excited for the opportunity to be joining the English Department at ISU!
