I began teaching at the Saint Ambrose Early Childhood Education Center in August 2020. I have a degree in social work and worked in the field for 9 year with both children and adults. After having my own children I decided to transition into early childhood education where I have worked for the past 11 years. Some of my previous places of employment have been at Everbrook Academy, St Croix Montessori and White Bear Montessori. I have been happily married for 19 years and we have lived in Woodbury for 16 of those years. Together we have a high school daughter, a middle school son and a dog named Meatball! I enjoy reading, gardening, cooking and spending time in nature.
