I'm a graduate of Albert Lea High School, where I was a three-sport athlete. I attended Gustavus Adolphus College, and was active in playing and then coaching basketball. I graduated with bachelor's degrees in psychology and criminal justice, and continued coaching following graduation. I began working at Alden-Conger in the fall of 2011, and earned a master's degree in Educational Leadership in 2012.
Outside of work, I enjoy many physical activities, such as walking, lifting weights, and playing golf. I also like to sing and read books, mostly non-fiction, and I love cheering for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
