I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with degrees in Theater Design/Management and History. I spent a number of years after college working as a Costume Designer for multiple theaters in the Twin Cities and surrounding communities. After 5 years working in theater I moved to San Francisco, CA with my husband and started my career in retail management and also volunteered with few children's theater companies. When we moved back to Minnesota we settled in Hudson, WI and have lived there for the last 8 years where we started a family and I continue to volunteer at the local children's theater when time permits.
I joined College Nannies, Sitters and Tutors in May of 2016 after working 10+ years in retail management. My work as the Family Placement Manager in the Woodbury office is fulfilling, rewarding and fun. I am looking forward to sharing my excitement about this company and helping to build a strong team of role models for the families in our community.
Since 2009, I’ve enjoyed serving our east metro families and their children in many roles, from an after school tutoring coordinator to the program director of Supplemental Education Services.
Today, as the Learning Center Manager of our Woodbury-Eagan office, I love the opportunity to build stronger families by bringing students and tutors together to achieve their academic goals!
I grew up in Denver, Colorado and now reside in St. Paul, where I miss the Rocky Mountains but love the Mississippi River.
My background includes a degree in liberal arts from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and prior management experience the Historic Sites Division with the Minnesota Historical Society.
In my spare time, I enjoy creating art, motorcycling, antique collecting, and volunteering for local historic organizations.
I am a University of Minnesota student studying Journalism, Theater and Religion. I am hoping to becoming a youth pastor and from there, go on to seminary. I love working with kids and families and I absolutely thrive off of building relationships. I love creating good in the lives of the people I work with and for. I also believe it is so important to provide a creative and loving environment for the kids I work with, and the people in my life in general. I am creative, outgoing, smart and I love, love, love creating a good time for everyone in my life.
