After student teaching right here in Amherst with Lynn Seifert and Karen Dunn, I began my professional career at Rosholt Public Schools in 1992, where I taught for six years. I then took a few years off to dedicate more time to my husband, Brian, and our two children, Kenny and Maria. I returned to teaching in 2005, teaching until the spring of 2011 at St. Peter Middle School in Stevens Point. In 2011, I was very happy to be welcomed to AMS/AHS as the vocal music director. My duties include 5th and 6th Grade General Music, 5th & 6th Grade Choir, 7th & 8th Grade Choir, High School Concert Choir, and Chamber Singers, an auditioned ensemble.
When not teaching, I am active in performance with SOUTHBOUND, a local country/classic rock band, for which I am a founding member, providing lead vocals, keyboard and acoustic guitar.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, flower gardening and cooking.
