I graduated from Lakeland College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and an emphasis in piano. I began teaching K-8 music in 1998. I am a member of NAFME (National Association for Music Education) and WSMA (Wisconsin School Music Association.) Other music activities I participate in include adjudicating music festivals in Wisconsin through WSMA, church organist, teaching at Lakeland College’s music camp, and teaching private piano lessons.
I have been married to my husband Dan since 1982. We have three grown children: Christopher lives in Milwaukee and is the graphic designer for Rishi Tea. Jason is married and is a 5th grade teacher in Nolensville, Tennessee. He and Amanda have two children, Wesley and Charlotte, who we love. Abigail is married and is a music teacher in Plymouth, Minnesota. We have 2 cats (Smudge and Cuddles) who we adopted at the Humane Society. In my free time, I love to read, knit, and crochet.
