MEd Education Theory and Practice (Arkansas State University)

I am Missouri born and raised! My husband, Derek and I, along with our three kids (Ellie, Clara, and Bodie) live just north of Kansas City.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
My first job was working at my home church’s daycare during the summers in high school.
I love to bake and garden. My kids really like baking, too. My daughters are great help, and my son loves to taste test. It gets us in the kitchen together. Gardening has become a new hobby for me. Growing up, our family garden always seemed like work that I had to do, but now I truly enjoy growing produce that my family will eat.
Bucket List Item
I am always adding items to my bucket list! My newest one is that my family would own our own camper. We have the amazing opportunity to go camping in my parents’ RV, but we would like to have our own some day.
I am a beach person! I especially love the Gulf of Mexico beaches in Florida. I don’t get to go often, but when I do go, I love to soak up the sun and put my feet in the sand! I am looking forward to the day when I can take all three of my kids to the beach for the first time.
Person I’d Like to Meet
In my house we are Pioneer Woman fans. If you have not heard of the Pioneer Woman, she is Ree Drummond. We enjoy her cooking show and the way of life on the ranch. In July of 2021, we went to her ranch to visit the lodge where she films her cooking shows. My girls and I love her recipes and were so hopeful to meet her while we were there. So Ree Drummond is who I would like to meet!
