Hi! This is my second year teaching with Kaleo, and I’m so excited for this new school year!


I am a native Texan. I was born on a military base in Arizona, but I got here as fast as I could!


I graduated from Yorktown High School in 1995, and promptly moved to Minnesota to attend Crown College. After a year in the freezing cold North, I moved back to Texas (Dallas) to attend The Criswell College.


In 1997 I married my husband, Andrew (who is from Northern Iowa). We immediately moved to Guadalajara, MX to attend language school. After that, we joined TIME Ministries as missionaries and served for 4 years in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, building chapels for congregations with no place to meet.


In 2001 We became missionaries with Wycliffe Bible Translators, and in 2004 moved to the Philippines where we served for 15 years and raised our three daughters who were 4yrs, 3yrs, and 2 months old when we arrived.


During our time on the field, I covered a variety of roles, including administration, workshop/event organization, teaching and training, Scripture Engagement (Media and Consulting), as well as homeschooling our three daughters.
