I received my BA from UNI in 1989 in German. My master's degree in School Counseling was done at Wayne State College in 1998.
My teaching career began in the Fort Dodge Middle Schools where I taught exploratory foreign languages, German, French, and a section of Spanish for one year. The next seven years I taught Health and Skills for Adolescence for them. I served 2 years as a 7-12 Counselor at Sac City before coming to Valley in the fall of 1999.
