I have been teaching music at Salem since 2008 and added Van Allen onto my music assignment in 2011. I also direct the choruses at both of these elementary schools. Prior to coming to the Mount Pleasant School District, I taught music at Harmony Schools and Burlington Community School District. I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth with a Bachelor of Music degree. I am privilaged to teach music to the younger children because music is something everyone can enjoy for the rest of thier lives.
I have two teenage children that keep me busy with their activities. I enjoy reading and walking through Shimek State Forest in my free time.
