I have been married to my husband Cory for 25 years. We have 4 children, Bekah is married to Ryan Campbell and teaches 5th grade at Worthington (big surprise, another teacher:-)) We are also thrilled to have a one year old grandson named Bleys and are excited that they will be having a little girl in November (more grandbabies to spoil)! Ben is a sophomore at SDSU in Brookings, South Dakota. He is in the pre-pharmacy program there and is hoping to enter pharmacy school next year. Nate is a senior this year through an online school called Insight School of MN. He enjoys working on the family farm in his spare time by Bricelyn, MN and going trail riding with his four-wheeler whenever possible. Ellie is a 9th grader and is involved in basketball, band and choir along with enjoying guitar lessons and piano. She actively writes her own music and frequently performs at various events and venues.
I attended Northwestern College from 1992-1994 and after a long sabbatical where I raised our children and taught private piano and vocal lessons, I returned to school in 2010 at Minnesota State University, Mankato and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Vocal Music Education in December of 2012. I absolutely LOVE music and getting to teach my passion to students is icing on the cake!In my spare time I like to exercise, sing at various events, worship team at church, read, and spend time with our kids and grandkid! I also like to arrange music and am working on composing music for a Christian Contemporary CD (if only there were more hours in a day!!).
