I have been the social worker at Jordan Elementary since 1999. I have a Bachelor's Degree from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN where I majored in both social work and Spanish. In 2004, I earned a Master's of Social Work from the University of Minnesota. I am licensed by the Minnesota Board of Social Work as an Independent Clinical Social Worker.  

In 2016 I participated in a 40 hour Certified Divorce and Family Transformative Mediation Training and am now listed on the Minnesota Supreme Court's Roster of Qualified Mediators.  In May of 2017 I became a Yoga Calm Certified Youth Instructor.  I am on track to complete the Interdisciplinary Certificate in Trauma Studies at the University of Minnesota by fall of 2017.
