I have been a Family and Consumer Science teacher in Brainerd since 1996. Prior to that, I worked 13 years for the federally funded program called WIC (Womens, Infants, & Children) as a Nutrition educator. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a BS in Home Economics Education and I have a Master's in Education from Southwest State University.
I am married to Steve Wiltse (works in sales and is a hockey ref) and have three adult children and 4 grandchildren. My home is complete with 4 dogs and 2 cats.
My hobbies include yard work, sewing, cooking, refinishing furniture, and more.
