Welcome!


Welcome to my page. I have been privileged to teach elementary music at Northland Community Schools since January 2013. I have also provided music classes for students in the ECFE program. In Fall 2014, Junior and Senior High Choir were added to my schedule. I am excited about the progress our choirs have made and am looking forward to their continued growth.

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 a son-in-law, and are proud grandparents to one grandchild. We share the parsonage with a big black lab/border collie named Benji.
