I attended school in Plainview from K-11 grade. My senior year, Plainview consolidated with Elgin-Millville, so I was in the first graduating class of PEM in 2007. I attended RCTC and WSU-Rochester. I student taught at Dover-Eyota in 4th grade with Mrs. Humble in the spring of 2010.
I have been married to Zach Karsjens for 10 years. We have two beautiful and energetic girls; Norah (6) and Alyvia (5). We also have a black lab named Ole and 13 chickens.
