  • 920-822-0470

I have been a lifelong resident of Chicago until moving to the Oneida community in 2007. Before coming to Hillcrest School, I worked for the Oneida Nation as an Education Specialist with high school students. I have enjoyed working with students of all ages since the day I walked into my first classroom many years ago.
