I am married to Dan Eekhoff and we have two daughters, Giovy and Lennon. I am an alumna of Pella High, where I played in the orchestra, as well as Central College. I previously taught Orchestra for the district before starting my family and, after several years away from full-time teaching, I am back! During my time away I continued to perform on my instrument (violin) as well as teach lessons privately and have been indirectly involved with the Pella Orchestra Program all that time. I’m excited to be back to making music in the district! In my free time I like to perform on my violin, work out, and follow my daughters in their various activities.
