What do you love about Zeeland Christian? 

Zeeland Christian has an healthy love for seeing children grow--which means in their success and failures. I love teaching here because failure needs to be embraced in the art room and that climate begins in the culture of the school as a whole.

Why are you passionate about Christian Education?

I love sharing with each student that they are already an artist because they are made in the image of the original creator! I believe this empowers kids to grow and take risks as they have this truth as their firm foundation

What do you want others to know about you?

I am married and have 2 grown sons. My husband and I love to golf, play pickleball and go on adventurous hikes. In the summer I am often combing the beach for driftwood to create sculptures!
