I was born in Washington D.C., and grew up in Maryland. I attended Wittenberg University and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. I received N-K certification and then a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Maryland. I taught school in both Maryland and Ohio.
I moved to Ohio when I married my husband, Dr. Gunther Koch, a dentist at the Brunswick Family Dental Practice. We have two sons, Andrew and Jeffery.
Currently, I am involved in many community activities. I am a member at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, a Trustee for the Brunswick Education Foundation, a volunteer for Project LEARN, a volunteer for the Brunswick Food Pantry and a substitute teacher for Harmony Preschool. I am happy now to be part of the staff.
