Just a little about me...
I am a native of Ortonville, Michigan and a product of Ortonville-Brandon School District. Upon graduation from high school, I started community college and working full time to pay off my college expenses. After completing my MACRAO Stamp at OCC I decided to transfer to Grand Valley State University and continue my education where I decided to go into education. I have now graduated with a Bachelor’s degree majoring in secondary education and grouped social studies as well as a minoring in physical education.
I have been a coach ever since I have graduated high school. Coaching two seasons of girls varsity track and field and 3 seasons of football (1 freshman D-coordinator & 2 8th Grade Head Coach) all with the same district I had graduated in. I was then given the opportunity to help develop Oakland University’s first football program as an offensive coordinator. After that season I had the opportunity to assist the offense of the new Rivals Professional Football League out of south east Michigan for a season with the Oakland County Racers. Lastly, I had the opportunity to help start Michigan State's first club/JV level football program in 2015 where I was an offensive coordinator.
I am down-to-earth type of person, who is loyal and trustworthy. I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends. God has blessed me with a talent to lead and help others with their goals, and I enjoy sharing that. I am a proud teacher, coach, and student and take things seriously. My joy is in helping others help themselves. I believe in the quote, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson
We should all help each other better ourselves, thus bettering our world.
