Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Nebraska and am a lifetime Husker Fan. I grew up very active in all sports, but went on to play college baseball at a couple schools, finishing up at Concordia University. I have always enjoyed working with kids in many roles. I have done that in a wide array of methods. I have been teaching for 12 years, worked as group counselor in a therapeutic camp for troubled teens, held the role of director of youth care facility, and worked as child abuse investigator and counselor. I have two children and love to spend time swimming, taking trips, watching their involvement in sports and activities, hunting and fishing with my family.
