I grew up in a town called Rollingstone, MN. It is about 15 miles north of Winona on HWY 61. I graduated from Winona Senior High School and then went on to Saint Mary's University of Minnesota to pursue my degree in K-6 Elementary Education Teaching. 

I have worked at the Rochester Center for Autism for 3 1/2 years, Jefferson Elementary School for 2 years and Kasson-Mantorville Elementary School this past year. 

I have a beautiful family that consists of my husband Scott; who teaches at Century High School; my step-son Gabriel who is in 3rd Grade at Kasson-Mantorville Elementary and my 9 month old Liam; who will be turning 1 in June!
