“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

~Abraham Lincoln


 I am so excited to be continuing in my 7th year at Washburn in 2023-2024!  I grew up in Minnesota, then lived 2 years in Belgium, and 20 years in Southern California, before moving back to Minnesota in 2016.  I received my high school diploma from the International School of Brussels, my Bachelor's Degree from Pomona College, and my

Master's Degree from CalState LA.

I have a husband named Sean, and two daughters who also attend Minneapolis Public Schools.  I also have two cute kitties, Nikko and Yumi.

I believe that ALL people have the ability to create their own future, and I look forward to helping all of my students achieve their greatest potential.
