My husband and I live in Savage, MN, and I have four adult children and five grandchildren. I attended Crown College majoring in Christian Education, and the University of Nebraska majoring in Elementary Education. I had my own child care center in my home for 25 years before coming to the Academy. I received my CDA certification in 2009 while teaching at the Academy. I love working with children of all ages! I am currently a teacher in the infant room. I also teach Bible to the preschoolers and older children. I enjoy working with the students and seeing them grow and mature into children who love the Lord. I continue to enjoy working with wonderful staff and appreciate the supportive families we have at the Academy.
