My kids and I on the last day of school June 2020.



Call or Text 612-351-2206

I love working at Jenny Lind! I have been with Minneapolis Public Schools since 2008 and started as an Americorps*VISTA at Sanford Middle School. I served at Sanford in a variety of roles that exposed me to various parts of the a school from teaching classes, planning field trips, and lots of paperwork! I am excited to be at Jenny Lind and continue to the great work that is happening here. My family and I are proud to call the Northside home! It is fun to run into students and families at community events and programs.

I got my Bachelors of Social Work from Taylor University and my Masters of Social Work from Monmouth University. My Masters is focused on International & Community Development. During my Masters I did an internship in Ghana. I feel like the focus on Community Development and systems work helps me navigate the school district and community resources.

I am very excited to be working with our staff and students. I will be working with all grades this year. I wear many different hats throughout the day and work with a lot of students and families. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about school, attendance, or other ways we can support your child and you.

I tell the students that I:

  • listen to students,

  • listen to staff,

  • listen to parents/guardians,

  • care about students,

  • support students,

  • support staff,

  • support parents/guardians,

  • advocate for students, and

  • connect!

I look forward to meeting with you this year!
