Welcome to MS/HS Band!!

A little bit about me....

I am originally from Volga, SD and currently live in Adrian, MN. My husband, Austin, and I have been married for 3 years and just welcomed our first child, Brantley. We also have a beagle named Penny. In my free time I like to play games, cook, and spend time with family and friends.

Throughout high school and college I kept myself busy with music and other extra-curriculars. I attended college at South Dakota State University (Go Jacks!!) and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Music Education. While in college I spent time playing my trumpet in the Pride of the Dakotas Marching Band as well as the pep band, jazz band, and symphonic band. I also spent time on student government, the Jackrabbit Yearbook and the Honor's College.

This is my 4th year teaching and I have loved every one! I taught 5-12 band in Hayti, SD for one year and then we moved to Lebanon, IN where I was the K-5 music teacher at 2 schools. Last year we lived in Sherburn, MN and I was a substitute teacher in 5 districts. I'm excited to call Adrian home and look forward to working with the students and staff for years to come!
