A little bit about me....

I was born and raised in Ely.  After graduating from Ely Memorial High School, I received my bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Bemidji State University in 2002.  After teaching in many different jobs in several districts I was happy to join the staff at Northeast Range in 2014.  In 2018 I received my Masters degree in Education from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota.  Most recently I received my Educational Administration certification and my K-12 principal license from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota in 2021.

I am the mother of four children, 1 son and 3 daughters.  I currently live in Ely with my husband and children.  We have lots of pets.  We have 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 fish, 1 guinea pig, and my 2 turtles who come to the classroom during the school year.

In my free time I love to be involved in dance and theater by performing, directing, and choreographing.  I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I like to spend time outdoors.  When I can't get outdoors or into the theater I enjoy spending time reading, crafting, and doing puzzles.
