Earned and Honorary Degrees
BS and BA, Viterbo University, La Crosse, WI
I am a self-confessed Chequamegon Bay transplant, and fall more in love with this area with each passing year. Following college graduation, I spent some time in Philadelphia briefly before settling outside of Minneapolis while I pursued a career in K-12 education. However, after years of visiting Mother Superior on vacation, my husband and I decided it was time to work where we live rather than living where we worked, and put an end to the constant rush out of the city each Friday. We've called this area home now since 2016 and I still pinch myself sometimes to make sure I'm not dreaming.
Northland is such a special place! The commitment to providing rich applied learning opportunities for students which offers a mutual benefit for businesses and community organizations sets us apart from other universities and colleges.
As a result of my professional work in K-12 Education, and community-based mental health care, I've learned I'm best when encouraging others to be their best. I'm looking forward to matching students with internships, networking opportunities, and work experiences that will support them in achieving their career goals.
I'm obsessed with my black labrador retriever mix, David! Most days you can find us hiking one of the many amazing trails or beaches in the area.
