I was a special education teacher for seventeen years, an assistant principal for two years, and a Center Director for almost 2 years.

I have two daughters, Lexi who is a freshman at North Ridgeville High School. She runs cross country and track. My other daughter is Delaney, who is in 6th grade at North Ridgeville Academic Center. She is involved in cheerleading. My husband of 17 years is Mike. Mike works as an Athletic Trainer at University Hospitals and Brookside High School.
