I was born and raised in a small town in NW Iowa.  I went to Christian schools all my life, until I left for college.  I received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!!), and a Master of Music Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (and Go Badgers….as long as they’re not playing the Hawkeyes…..).

This is my 10th year of teaching Music at NHCS.  My husband Chad and I live in Oshkosh with our four children: Hannah (20), who goes to Ripon College, Jensen (17), Ellie (14), who both go to SMC, and Fisher (9)who attends NHCS.  Hannah, Jensen and Ellie are all graduates of NHCS.

I keep very busy with work, and we enjoy attending and supporting our children in their various activities.

I believe music plays an integral part in all of our lives on some level.  My favorite Bible verse is Romans 12:12…Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
