I graduated from high school in 1999 from Wittenberg-Birnamwood High. In December of 2003, I received a Bachelor of Music in music education from Viterbo University in LaCrosse. Immediately after receiving my undergraduate degree I taught for 5 months in the Wausau Area Catholic Schools. I then taught 1 year in Wisconsin Rapids before coming to Mosinee in August of 2005. I received my master's degree in educational technology from Marian University in July of 2007.
My husband and I have two children. Our daughter was born in December of 2006 and our son was born in April of 2010. We enjoy boating, skiing, snowmobiling and traveling.
