I grew up on a dairy farm in central Wisconsin and graduated from Marshfield Columbus High School where I participated in cross country, basketball and track.  I graduated from UW-River Falls with a B.S. in Agricultural Business and was the captain of the cross country team for 3 years and on the track team where I competed in the triple jump, heptathlon/pentathlon and various relays.   I’ve continued to run since college and have ran several half marathons and completed my first marathon in June.

I spent 26 years with DuPont in their crop protection and food safety businesses and had various roles throughout my time with them.  Recently, I took a role with Valent USA LLC as a specialist in their Sustainable Solutions Business Unit.

My husband Tony and I have been married for 27 years and we have 2 great kids.  Jarret is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida and was on the NDA cross country team for 4 years.  Bennet will be a junior at NDA and is currently on the cross country team.

I’m thrilled to be coaching again this year and look forward to being part of a team with such a great group of kids.
