I've been an educator for over 30 years. Prior to joining CVA in 2012, I worked nationwide as a consultant both online and bricks & mortar programs. CVA's hybrid program is a perfect fit for me! For fun, I love scuba diving for the the experience of neutral buoyancy and photographing the amazing creatures. I enjoy word games, try to keep in shape, and watch movies, old and new. I have two kids, now both in college in New York.

I grew up in St. Paul, MN. I headed away and studied History and Women's Studies at Guilford College in North Carolina, but my heart was back in the Twin Cities so I returned after graduation. When not managing the office at CVA, I enjoy gardening, cooking, reading, camping, singing, dancing, museums, home repair, travel, and leisurely outings with my four children.

I've been with Cyber Village Academy since the summer of 2001.  I enjoy the unique IT challenges that come with working at a public school.  It forces me to stretch my technical imagination.  Away from CVA, I like staying active.  Tennis, football, hiking are just a few of my favorite activities.  I've gotten the taste of being a European traveler and see many more visits in my future.

Teaching at CVA is pretty much my favorite thing ever.  The students are rock stars.  My friends and family will tell you that I frequently make Facebook posts like “Is there anything better than a unit on WWI? #iloveteaching”.  I attended school for history and art at Loyola University in New Orleans and the U of M in Minneapolis with a semester abroad in London before getting my Masters in Social Studies Ed at the U.  In my spare time I like to travel, run, cook, write, play with my cat, spend time with friends, travel, read about history, watch Star Trek, take selfies, drink coffee, and… travel some more!  This summer I’m excited to go back to Kenya as assistant director and educational coordinator for summer camp, then I get to return to CVA and teach some super fun social studies classes to some totally amazing students!
