I am originally from Clarence, Iowa. I attended Loras College and majored in Athletic Training. I then attended Western Illinois University and earned a Master’s degree in Kinesiology while working as a teaching assistant. At WIU, I taught clinical courses in athletic training; and I learned what it takes to be a good instructor which has become my second passion. I also had the opportunity to work with teams like Rugby and Lacrosse. I took my first job working as a high school athletic trainer and loved it! Never a dull moment! I started working at Simpson in 2012 as an Athletic Trainer and Instructor. I work primarily with Women’s Volleyball and Women’s Basketball. I also teach several courses in Sport Science and Health Education.
I live in Indianola and in my free time enjoy spending time with family and friends, golfing, horseback riding, traveling, movies, Netflix binging, outdoor activities, reading, cooking and running. I also enjoy cheering on my favorite sports teams, the Yankees, Hawkeyes and 49ers.
