I grew up in a rural area in Illinois.  My parents were hard workers and provided for our family of seven.  They encouraged me to reach for the stars through hard work.  I attended Illinois State University and earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education, Master of Science Degree in Physical Education and Educational Leadership Certification.  I spent 25+ years in education as a teacher and an administrator while raising two daughters with my husband.  After retiring from education I chose to become a realtor with Keller Williams to continue to serve my community and to help those around me.  I continue to use my love of education by being a trainer in the market center.  I look forward to helping students and young adults unlock their potential and reach their goals as a Quantum Leap instructor.
