I am dedicated to aligning the resources our youth need to succeed, cradle to career. I have sixteen years experience in K-12 education as a high school English teacher and after earning a Master’s in Human Development, I shifted into the workforce development field so as a community, we can help students know their career options early and often. I believe Olmsted County will grow and prosper by ensuring all residents, current and future, see their work as valuable and aligned with their individual strengths, passions, and skill sets. This starts with equitable access to the valuable resources we have at the ready in our community.
I live in Eyota, Minnesota with my husband and two sons. If we aren’t home, you can find us outside, taking in the best of each Southeast Minnesota season. Personally, I particularly enjoy running, hiking, snowboarding followed by some yoga or binge watching a well-written series.
