I am blessed to be serving as your preschool teacher and program director.  It is exciting for me to be returning to TLS because this is where I began my teaching experience as a student teacher nearly 20 years ago!   Since then I have held teaching positions with Lutheran Special Education Ministries, St. Peter Lutheran School - Hemlock, as a part-time teacher here at Trinity and most recently as a preschool teacher at Ready Set Grow.   I am currently the Owner/Program Director at Ready Set Grow Childcare and Preschool in Auburn.  My husband, Dave and I have owned Ready Set Grow since 2006 and I have thoroughly enjoyed serving the families and children of the Auburn area while providing them with a high quality early childhood education.

I was born and raised in Bad Axe, Michigan - the youngest of my family.  I attended SVSU where I received a Bachelors degree in Elementary Special Education.  While attending SVSU, I met my wonderful husband.  I married Dave in 1994 and became a member of Trinity soon after.  Dave is a lifelong member of Trinity.  We have been blessed by God with 4 beautiful children who have graduated from, or are currently attending, Trinity - Megan, Matthew, Alex & Ben.   Our family enjoys spending time together playing games and watching college sports - especially MSU!
