I am thrilled to be working with students in my 13th year at Hillside!  I grew up in Bismarck, North Dakota, graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and Political Science.  I worked in the retail and transportation industries, living in Minnesota, Nebraska, and Virginia.  While volunteering in my children's classrooms, I discovered my passion is helping students find their strengths and to use those strengths as keys to unlock the doors to reading, writing, and math. I pursued and received a Master's Degree in Special Education K-12 from George Mason University. 

       I live in Ashburn with my husband, Paul, two children, Derek (attends James Madison University-sports management) and Kelsie(attends University of Delaware-PhD in Physical Therapy).  My little slice of paradise is on Lake Le Homme Dieu in Alexendria, Minnesota.  I passionately cheer for the Minnesota Twins and Vikings!  I enjoy reading and cooking.  I believe learning is a life-long journey.  It is my goal to instill a love of learning in students.  I look forward to a wonderful year, filled with growth and fun!
