Biography Grew up in Winona, MN attending St. Matthew’s Lutheran School before moving on to Winona High and Winona State University.  Graduated in 1999 from Winona State with a BS in Business Administration. Following graduation I worked at Volkswagen Credit in Libertyville, IL for 6 years. I worked in areas such as customer service, collections, credit, and data analysis.  During my time at Volkswagen, I also attended UW-Parkside and obtained my MBA in 2003. Following my time at VW, I enrolled at the University of Minnesota to obtain a public school teaching license in business education as well as a Masters of Education. In 2006 I moved to Mankato to teach at Mankato East Senior High. During my last year at East I became the head men and women’s tennis coach here at Bethany and in the fall of 2013 I came over to Bethany full time. I also spent a few years as the business director of Bethany’s Stone Path Studios. Currently I am teaching full time, married, and living in Jordan, MN. Academic Interests/Specialties Currently I specialize in the courses that are part of the sport management emphasis under the business administration major. I also teach two classes in our finance emphasis as well as two general education courses including our online macroeconomics course.
