I grew up in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. I am the oldest of four girls in my family. I played a lot of sports growing up, my favorites being basketball and volleyball. After graduating from Lakeside Lutheran High School, I attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota, where I received my B.S. in elementary education. This is also where I met my husband Aaron. After getting married, we moved to Manitowoc. He is now the principal and an upper grade teacher at Bethany Lutheran School. We have three children. Our daughter Makiah is eight years old, our son Aaden is six years old, and our daughter Laila is three years old. They keep us pretty busy - we enjoy walking, biking, swimming, and playing together. When I do have some free time, I enjoy reading, going to Milwaukee Brewers or Green Bay Packers games, watching movies, and catching up with my friends and family.
