The 2016-2017 school year was my first year at Carlisle High School. Before coming to Carlisle, I was a high school counselor at Johnston High School for ten years. I am an Ellsworth Community College and Iowa State graduate who taught high school special education for seven years before becoming a counselor.
My family and I have lived in the district for over 10 years, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work in the same district my own children attend! Go Cats! I have a 13-year-old son, Carson, and a 10-year-old son, Ethan. My husband, Chris, and I have been married for 18 years. Last spring we welcomed our new puppy- a miniature pinscher- Otis into our family. You will most likely see our family at the basketball court or on the baseball field as both boys keep active in these sports. Besides watching my boys play sports, I love to read, walk, relax outdoors, and spend time with family and friends.
