I graduated from William Chrisman High School (da’ Bears!) in Independence, Missouri in 2006. After that I attended William Penn University on a soccer scholarship in Oskaloosa, Iowa (go Statesmen!). I graduated from WPU in 2010 with a bachelor of arts in secondary education with an emphasis in English, Language Arts, and Journalism. I currently reside in the small town of Liberal, Kansas where I teach (and coach).
