We believe in our students!

This is my 29th year in education and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful students, families and colleagues. I began my career working with students with special needs at the high school level, and I have been in administration for past 15 years. I am passionate about ensuring all students succeed and develop strong relationships with the staff in our building. I am excited to be a part of the Orono community!
In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, especially hockey and golf. I love to read, watch movies and travel when I can. I grew up in Minnetonka and live with my husband, John, who is an engineer.
