I graduated from Concordia-Moorhead, MN in December 1996. I spent 1 ½ year as a volunteer missionary for the LCMS in Almaty, Kazakhstan. While there I taught English and helped with music at the church. From Kazakhstan, I went to Kodaikanal, India for five years to teach music, middle and high school choir, voice lessons, and strings at a Christian international school.
In 2003, I moved to Bremen, Germany to teach preschool through 10th-grade music and started an elementary and upper school choir, recorder club, and small instrumental ensemble. After Bremen, I moved back to the United States to San Antonio, TX teaching choir, band, theology, and German. While working in San Antonio, I received my MA Degree from Concorida-Texas, an MA in Music Education with a Choral focus from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, and an MA in Theology from Concordia-Irvine, CA.
I am excited to join the staff a Lincoln Lutheran and teach my passion for vocal music to the students in grades 6–12; along with teaching 8th-grade theology and computer applications. I am blessed to have my family close to me and have my free time occupied by Daisy, my chihuahua rescue. I am proud to be a Warrior!
