Why are you passionate about working at NIET?

I am passionate about working for NIET because I believe in the mission with my whole heart. I truly believe every child deserves a quality education from an effective educator. I have had the opportunity to learn and grow from NIET support for the past decade and now want to share my experience so that more students have the opportunity to be successful. I have seen firsthand the positive impact NIET support has made in the lives of children. This work energizes me knowing that we are truly making a difference and teaching students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and problem-solvers.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and four kids. I like exercising, hiking, camping, and watching reality TV with my family. We love to vacation together doing just about anything including the beach, amusements parks, and whitewater rafting. Currently my favorite thing to do is watch my daughter's softball games.
