  • Where did you grow up?

    Born and raised in Northfield, MN.

  • Tell us about your family.

    My family includes my parents and two siblings. I have a sister who is an elementary school social worker who is married with three children. And a brother who works in Management Information Systems who is married and is expecting his first child. They all still live in Minnesota.

  • Share something about yourself that might surprise people.

    I started playing ice hockey in high school. I’ve loved it ever since, though it has been a couple of years since I’ve tied on my skates.

  • Briefly describe your work experience.

    I started my teaching career in Chicago Public Schools. After graduate school I moved to Western Montana where I lived and worked in a community of 600 people. Thought I’d stay a year and ended up staying for a decade. I have taught high school French, AP United States History, AP World History, Government, and 7th/8th grade French along with various electives.

    The last couple of years I’ve been an Adjunct Professor at FVCC focusing on American History.

  • If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?

    I love to travel so this is hard. North Slope of Alaska. I have a former colleague who lives there and I’m just intrigued with living on the top of the world.

  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

    I read all the time, which comes with the job. I took up snowshoeing this past winter so I’m excited to do more of that this upcoming winter. I also have friends and family across the U.S., so travelling to see them is always fun.

  • Name a movie or book that had a profound effect on your life. Briefly describe why.

    Too many to name. Recently I have read a lot of Ta-Nehisi Coates work. As someone who has spent my academic life studying African American history, I appreciate moving from the past to the present with his views on race issues in our society.

  • What draws you most to this type of work?

    I’m a teacher. I always have been. I love working with young people and hopefully helping to provide the foundation for their next steps in life.
