Education
I graduated UW River Falls in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Conservation Science and a Minor in Outdoor Adventure Education. In 2019 I got my license in Special Education and started the process to get my masters in 4-12 grade math & science with a marketing minor.

Experience
In 2009 I started working at local day camps and in 2014 that changed to overnight trip camps. I have worked for 7 different camps and lead trips both back and front country in over 15 states. In 2019 I took a break and taught math and science in high school. I missed the summer camp life so in January 2022 I relocated to Madison to work at Kids Junction.

Personal
In my free time I enjoy hiking, photography, fishing and spending time with my family.
