I graduated from Aurora University in 1983 with a B.A. in Biology. I received my teaching credentials/certification through Aurora University in 1984. I began my teaching career in 1984/85 in the Wilmington School District where I worked for 9 years. I was added to the Plainfield Dist. 202 staff in the fall of 1994 and I have worked at PCHS since that time. I received my Masters degree in Teaching/Leadership from St. Xavier University in 2002.
