I graduated high school from the Maple River School District and majored in accounting at Gustavus Adolphus College. Upon graduating from Gustavus I’ve spent my career working in accounting, finance, and currently commercial insurance. I have lived in the Mankato area since 2000. I have two children attending Mankato East High School and a 3rd child who is 5 years old and will enter kindergarten next year in our district. I have served on many non-profit boards in our community along with my church’s council. In most cases I have been the President or Treasurer of these organizations, sometimes serving as both. I am very active in our community and passionate about our schools. I was appointed to the Mankato Area School Board in July of 2022 and officially seated in August of 2022.
