Language Arts

I was born and raised in Plymouth, MN, a suburb just west of Minneapolis. Upon graduating from Robbinsdale Armstrong High School, I attended Luther College. I graduated from Luther College in 2006 with a degree in Theatre/Dance. After a couple of years acting in community theatre productions and being a barista at Starbucks, I went back to finish off my English Education degree: again, through Luther College. During my first year of teaching in New Prague, I decided to go back to school at Hamline University to receive my Masters in Education. I received this in June of 2012 and after that I started work on my Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I received this degree in December of 2016. 


Some of my hobbies are: watching movies/plays, having a nice dinner with friends and family, hiking, biking, going to hockey games, and going for a walk with my golden retriever, Malcolm.
