I was born and raised in Beloit, attending the School District of Beloit schools. After high school I continued my education at UW Whitewater graduating with a BSE and MSE in Elementary education. Returning to Beloit, I married my husband where we raised our three children. My two sons and daughter all graduated from Beloit Memorial High School and attended the UW Madison.
My teaching career consisted of 28 years in elementary education, 21 of those years in the School District of Beloit. After one short year of being away from teaching, I felt a void of working with students and making a difference in my community. I accepted the position of Director of Education Services at Hendrick’s CareerTek knowing I will have the opportunity to continue my passion of working with the youth of the Beloit Community. I now work with young people who could have been at one time one of my past students. It’s very rewarding to be able to help our youth with career exploration opportunities, building their futures as productive citizens. I am honored to have this opportunity to continue my desire of making a difference at Hendricks CareerTek.
