I was a teacher in the Appleton area school district for 29 years. I retired in January 2020 to join Cherie full-time as the office manager. I have also taken Imago Relationship Therapy training as we hope to develop more educational training for couples here at GCC.
My teaching background varies as I have taught everything from computer repair, multimedia, web page development and welding/manufacturing. I served in the Coast Guard after graduating high school and was involved in search and rescue in Ketchikan, Alaska. Thanks to the VA I was able to attend college at UW Stout where I received my B.S. in Technology education. Later, I attended UW Oshkosh and received my M.S. in Educational Technology.
I enjoy the outdoors and shooting sports such as trap. I also enjoy riding my motorcycle on trips throughout the USA.
