I grew up in Waconia, MN, and I'm the youngest of four. I've always been close with my family, and it's something that I cherish more than anything. After I graduated from Waconia High School, I decided to attend Winona State University. It is here where I discovered my love for teaching and began on this wonderful journey. Outside of my school work I found myself working at multiple different pizza restaurants, and it is where I met the love of my life, Leslie. Together we graduated from Winona State in 2016, and now we find ourselves living in my hometown Waconia. This will be my first year at HLWW, but last year I worked at both Buffalo High School and Middle School in a variety of roles. As far as hobbies, I love to play basketball, spend time outdoors, and travel. This year I will be teaching all the Business and Technology Courses in the High School and Middle School, along with coaching 9th grade girls basketball. Please don't hesitate to email me any questions you have, and I look forward to a great year!
