Welcome!

Welcome to my page. I have been privileged to teach elementary music at Northland Community Schools since January 2013, and Junior and Senior High Choir since Fall 2014.

Prior to moving to Remer I taught K-8 music and choir for 12 years and Junior High Band for 3 years at St. Mary's School in Bird Island, MN. I have been teaching private piano, flute, and organ lessons for more than 30 years. I also taught high school English at Olivia High School (now BOLD) in Olivia, MN, for 2+ years. I have been a church musician since I was in high school.

I majored in music education and English at Concordia College, Moorhead, MN. I have also completed all three levels of Orff-Schulwerk, Level 1 Kodaly at UST, and Level 1 of World Music Drumming.

My husband Dale is the pastor at Bethany Lutheran Church in Remer. We have two grown children and are proud grandparents of three grandchildren. We share the parsonage with a big black lab/border collie named Benji.
