    About me:
     I've lived in the area my whole life-- I went to St. Joan of Arc K-8 and Regina High School. In 2000 I received my B.A. in History from Michigan State University, with minors in Secondary Education and English. I went on to earn a Master's Degree in Social Studies Education from Wayne State University. Ever since I was a little girl, history has always been my favorite subject, and I feel very lucky to be able to study what I'm passionate about every day and share it with my students! This is my 17th year at GPN.
    I live in Grosse Pointe Park with my husband Jake, our daughter Parker, son Milo and our dog Benny. I love to travel the world and see the places first hand that I read and teach about.  I also love hunting estate sales, thrift stores and flea markets for vintage treasures from the 1930s-1960s. I alsoenjoy cooking (and eating!), reading, and watching movies.
