Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in social studies and secondary education from a small college in Dubuque, Iowa (Loras College). I received my master's degree in school counseling from Governors State University. I taught US History, World History and Psychology at the high school level. I began working as a counselor in January of 1998 at Liberty Middle School (before the merging of our district's 2 middle schools).
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family (including our sweet little fox terrier) and friends. I also enjoy working out, taking walks and bike riding. Also, I enjoy watching Notre Dame sports!
