I grew up on a horse and cattle farm in Dennison MN. I attended the University of Minnesota Mankato for undergrad, DePaul University in Chicago for graduate school, and received my doctorate degree from Capella University. I worked as an adolescent and family therapist prior to coming to Riverland. One of my goals is to connect with my students and to make learning fun so students enjoy coming to class. I truly enjoy working with my students in the classroom and on service projects in the community.Phone: 507-433-0537

I have twin daughters, Mara and Madison. I have a dog Penny, two cats Tiffany and Ditz, and two horses KC and Leo.
For fun, I love to travel, read, and spend time with family and friends.
