I graduated from Northfield High School and went on to earn my bachelors degree in psychology and sociology from Hamline University.
I played both volleyball and softball in college and I'm currently the head coach for both volleyball and badminton at Harding. I've worked at Harding for more than 20 years.
I am married and have two children, a dog, a cat and three goldfish (that my daughter won at the County Fair). In my freetime I enjoy canoeing and camping with my family, scuba diving and watching my kids play sports.
