Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 23nd year as a Family and Consumer Science (FACS) and in my 1st year at Gordon Parks. My home is in Spring Valley, WI where I like to garden, and I am a Master Canner, so I love to preserve all the great food I grow. I love to swim and being out in the country. I also enjoy working in the city it helps me balance out all the great things the city offers.
I believe education is life long, so I have studied in small colleges and large universities. I started my education at Lakewood (Century College) where I studied music and social work, St. Paul College, University of MN, and the University of WI Stout where I have received degrees in Dietetic and Family Consumer Science, certifications in chemistry, hotel and restaurant cookery, master work in career and technology education, as well as guidance and counseling. I worked for Health East, Metropolitan-Mount Sinai Medical Center, and Hennepin County WIC. What does this all mean? Family Consumer Science is a great fit because you have to know a lot to teach FACS.
