I enjoyed growing up in the small town of Welcome.  I loved to spend many hours helping my dad farm and raising animals. I earned a bachelor degree from St. Cloud State University and my licenses are in the areas of Elementary Education, Kindergarten, and Early Childhood Education. Later I earned a master's degree in Special Education from University of Minnesota Mankato. I began teaching at Blue Earth Area Schools in 1996. Previous to coming to Blue Earth Area, I taught preschool and kindergarten at Granada Huntley East Chain.  I live in Fairmont MN and I enjoy gardening, cooking, reading and spending time on the lake.
