I graduated from MSUM with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Legal Assistance and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. I have been active in public service throughout my entire career – previously as the Director of Victim Services in the Clay County Attorney’s Office and currently as the Criminal Justice Systems Manager with the Minnesota Elder Justice Center.
I currently serve on the FM Area Foundation’s Women’s Advisory Committee and was the chairperson for the 2017 Women’s Fund Breakfast. I have also served on the board of the Minnesota Elder Justice Center and was the first Board President for the Rainbow Bridge Safe Exchange Center in Moorhead.
I am married to my husband Ron, a Moorhead native. We have two children – our son McKinnon (19) is a 2017 Moorhead High School graduate, and our daughter Jordan (15) is currently a sophomore at Moorhead High School.
I attend Trinity Lutheran Church and have been active as both a confirmation leader and summer bible school leader.
