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 completed in my first half marathon a couple years ago.  I hope to get a marathon under my belt before I get too old.

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 26 years and we have 2 great kids we are very proud of.  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 sophomore 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.
