I graduated from Central College with a BA degree in business management and home economics. I continued my education with a Master’s degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management from Iowa State University–go Cyclones! After working in the catering department at Central College, I started in child nutrition at Knoxville CSD in 1997 and have found my true interest. It even took me to Washington D.C. to testify at a senate committee hearing on Healthier US School Challenge.
Our family lives near Pella and raises, trains & shows miniature horses. When the weather is bad there are always many quilting projects started inside.
