She was blessed to have the chance of a lifetime that included traveling the world, meeting awesome and inspiring people, attending the White House in 2008 and getting the chance to serve as the commencement speaker for the University of Cincinnati in 2008. There was one thing that she missed and that was being in the classroom. In 2014 she graduated with her masters degree from the College of Mount Saint Joseph and was happy to be hired as a second grade educator. Currently she is teaching 2nd grade at a Cincinnati Public School and is enjoying being an educator. Now as a former track athlete turned teacher she is able to use all her skills she learned on the track and apply them in the classroom. The students love and enjoy her spirit, and are excited to tell everyone that there teacher is an 'Olympian".
