Degrees and Certifications:
Before returning to the area, I attended Lake Area Technical Institute to earn my Early Childhood Education degree. After LATI, I went to Northern State University in Aberdeen where I received my degree in Elementary Education.
I am a graduate of Britton-Hecla—go Braves! My husband and I live on a farm outside of Claremont, SD. We have one son and an energetic black lab. I have been working with children for a very long time. During junior high and high school, I worked at daycares around town. I have also coached swim team and volunteered for other various activities in the community. Children continue to amaze me by learning new skills, continuing to improve on their understandings, and preparing themselves for their futures.
