Education/Certifications: I graduated from Estherville Lincoln Central High School in 2005. I then went on to attend the University of Northern Iowa (Go Panthers!) in Cedar Falls, Iowa where I received my Bachelors Degree in Social Work with a minor in Family Studies in 2009. After spending some time in the field, I decided to pursue a Masters Degree in K-12 School Counseling from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota and graduated in 2013. In addition, I have been a Nationally Certified Counselor since 2014.
Hobbies: In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, crafting, riding bike, and cheering on the UNI Panthers and the Iowa Hawkeyes!
Family: My husband, Laryl, and I reside in Boyden, Iowa with our two children, Brynn and Leo, along with our puppy, Ollie! Laryl is employed with Pella Windows in their Commercial Sales Branch Department. Our daughter, Brynn, is a third grader at Boyden-Hull Elementary. She has quite the sense of humor, loves being outside and enjoys doing crafts! Leo is 2.5 years old and enjoys all things farm related and playing in the dirt. Ollie is our 7 month old Poochon, who joined our family in August of 2019!
