I began as the elementary counselor at Central Lyon in 2017, and am shared with a neighboring district (Rock Valley). I graduated from Estherville Lincoln Central High School in 2005. I then went on to to attend the University of Northern Iowa (Go Panthers!) in Cedar Falls, Iowa, where I received my Bachelors Degree in Social Work with a minor in Family Studies in 2009. After spending some time in the field, I decided to pursue a Masters Degree in K-12 School Counseling from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota and graduated in 2013.
My husband, Laryl, and I reside in Boyden, Iowa with our two children, Brynn and Leo! Laryl is employed at Interstates Electric as a Project Manager in the engineering department. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, crafting, riding bike, and cheering on the UNI Panthers and the Iowa Hawkeyes!
