I have lived in Hiawatha for more than 5 years. I used to work at Koch Cabinets here in Hiawatha until I got into an accident there and had to have some surgery on my finger, Unfortunately I got it caught in an air press and had to have multiple surgeries to repair the damage. I went to school in Dawson Nebraska K-12, I then went on to Peru State College to get my Psychology Degree. My husband Jeff and I got married in April 2016 and he plays in a couple local bands in the area, My Cousin Steve and Kingfisher. We have 5 kids all together, Meriah (13), Kamren (11), Kymira (7), Bay (4) and Charlie Lynn (2) We are very busy with sports activities and our home life. We currently bought a house in Robinson and will be having our first Christmas there in 2016.

I currently am the Color Guard Sponsor, and Ms. Mayer's assistant in the High School Counseling Office. I look forward to helping all the students and watching them grow into respectful young adults in our community.
