I am a 1987 graduate of Dover-Eyota High School.

I graduated from Winona State University in 1991 with my Bachelors degree and again in 2004 with my Masters degree.

From 1991 to 2000 I taught at Bellview-Danube-Renville-Sacred Heart (BDRSH) which has since changed to Renville County West (RCW).

In 2000 I returned to teach at Dover-Eyota and have been here ever since.
