Hey scholars and families, welcome to JAJ, home of the Jaguars!
My name is Ms Barrett and my career with SPPS began in 2019 after working seven years in healthcare as an occupational therapist. I am an itinerant therapist for SPPS and service multiple schools. I graduated from St Catherine University with a bachelors degree in exercise and sport science and a masters degree in occuptional therapy. My professional background includes working with children ages 4-18 in a mental health setting and children birth-18 in a rehabilitative clinic.
When I am not at school my list of hobbies can be endless and of course dependent upon the ever changing MN weather. In the warm months I enjoy golfing, fishing, camping, and riding my motorcycle. During the colder months I enjoy ice fishing, down hill skiing, and snowmobiling. Of course I have indoor hobbies as well which include crossword puzzles, sudoku, coloring, and jigsaw puzzles.
I grew up in North Dakota and came to the Twin Cities for college. I am proud to call Minneapolis my home for the past 13 years. My spouse and I enjoy being outside either on a golf course or at a lake. We have two dogs, Joules and Oakley.
I am thankful to be a part of the JAJ communicty and am proud to be a Jaguar. At JAJ we all strive to be better and do better every single day. My goal at JAJ is to create meaningful relationships with students and families so they may learn, teach, and have fun.
