I started my career later in my life. I graduated from St. Cloud State University in May of 1995 where I majored in Special Education. I began teaching at Harding High School in September 1995. I received my Master's degree through St. Mary's University, Winona in May of 1999.
I have two sons, my oldest lives in Woodbury with his wife and two children. My youngest son lives and works in Washington, D.C.
In my "free time" I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, Sasha and Eric.
I love nature and being outdoors. At home I enjoy my flowers and working in the yard. I like to cross- country ski in the winter. I also enjoy crafty things if I have time.
