Welcome to the Business & Marketing Department! I have been a teacher at Pine Island High School since 2008. I also serve as the DECA advisor and am a member of the Minnesota DECA board of advisors. Classes I teach include Ads & Sales Marketing, Sports & Entertainment Marketing, Intro to Business, Personal Computer Applications, Accounting, Web Design & Desktop Publishing, Personal & Business Law, and Advanced Computer Applications.
I am originally from Wisconsin and am a fan of all Wisconsin sports teams, especially the Packers. I received my undergraduate degree in Marketing from the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse. Upon graduation, I worked in the music industry as a band manager and as a sales representative for a music distribution company. In addition to being passionate about music, I have a strong interest in movies as well and spent several years volunteering at the Sundance Film Festival held in Park City, Utah. I also hadve several years of experience working in retail management and fashion merchandising before continuing on to receive my Masters of Education in Business & Marketing Education from the University of Minnesota—Twin Cities.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family (which includes 3 cats, 2 dogs, and a tree frog), listening to music, watching movies, reading, and spending time outdoors.
