I grew up in Mankato, MN graduating from Mankato West in 2001. From there I went to Concordia College, where I graduated in 2005. I was hired in 2005 by Blue Earth Area Public Schools where I have been teaching since! Music groups I have participated in are: Mankato Lancers, West Concert Band, Jazz Band, Concordia College Band, Orchestra and Jazz Band and Brass Quintet. I teach 5-12 Orchestra and 7-8 Girls Choir.
I enjoy hiking, biking, walking, spending time with family and watching tv with my husband, dog and cats.
