Hola! I am excited to join the staff here as a third generation alum of MCS. I attended Calvin College as an Education and Spanish major and met my husband Nathan there as well. In the summer before my senior year at Calvin, I lived with a host family in Argentina for a month. We took several excursions including to Uruguay. I would love to someday travel with my husband to other countries to get more stamps in my passport! I have 4 children, two of whom attend MCS currently (and 2 more who can’t wait to be old enough to join their siblings).
I love to dance! Before we had children, my husband and I took ballroom dancing lessons for 2 years where we learned the tango, salsa, foxtrot, swing, waltz, rumba, bachata, cha-cha, merengue, and disco. I would love to pick up ballroom dancing with my husband again…although that probably won’t happen for at least another 17 years!
