More about the Counselor...

I grew up near Madison, Wisconsin with my parents, younger brother and the family dog. I graduated from Monona Grove High School.

In 2010, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Child Psychology along with a second major in Spanish Studies and a minor in Family Social Science from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Yes, I am a die-hard Gopher fan. As a four-year member of the University of Minnesota Marching Band (colorguard, but I also play saxophone) my blood seemed to change from red and white to maroon and gold quite quickly! During my time at college, I also studied for a semester at the College of Charleston through the National Student Exchange program and completed a Summer Study Abroad experience in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Finally I held down a part-time job working as an assistant teacher in a university preschool program.

Right after graduation I moved to Iowa City to begin my Masters of School Counseling program at the University of Iowa. During this time I also worked as a paraeducator for two years in an offsite special education classroom for secondary students with severe emotional and/or behavior disorders. In the final year of my program I worked as a substitute teacher and graduate assistant for the University of Iowa helping with research on assistive technology for students with behavior disorders. I interned at Solon High School, West Liberty Middle School and Coolidge Elementary School as well as completed a practicum at Lone Tree Community School (K-12).

In May of 2013, I earned my Masters degree in School Counseling from The University of Iowa and shortly after accepted the high school counselor position here at Triton High School. I know how much the Triton School District values high-class education, as well as the well-being and success of its students. I am so honored to be a part of this team and will do my best in insuring I continue in this tradition.

I live in Dodge Center with my one year old mutt, Halli and am recently engaged. Looks to be an exciting year! :)
