I was born and raised right here in Caledonia, MN. I attended elementary school here at St.John's in Caledonia, MN. I graduated from Caledonia High School in 2000. I attended and graduated from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN in 2004. After college I taught second and third grade at Immanuel Lutheran School in La Crosse, WI (2004-2006). From (2006-2013) I had the privilege serving as the Center Director and Lead Preschool Teacher at First Lutheran Church in La Crescent, MN. Most recently (2013-2015) I had been working as a Center Director for Childfirst in La Crosse, WI. In May 2015 I accepted the call to teach first and second grade here in Caledonia.
My husband Chris and I have one child, his name is Gavin. We have dogs Marley and Gus. In my free time my husband and I love to travel and ride our motorcyles. I am really excited to start the school year teaching in the same classroom that I once was a student!
