I began in the Pella district, as the shared Director of Human Resources, in 2015. I’m currently beginning my eighteenth year as a school administrator. I have been an alternative high school principal and Director of Curriculum and Instruction.
Prior to becoming an administrator, I taught at the elementary and secondary levels, served as a secondary At-Risk Coordinator, and worked at Heartland AEA with at-risk youth.
I earned my Bachelor and Master degrees from Iowa State University and my Specialist’s degree from Drake University.
I am married (Jay) with one daughter (Kendall), who is a UNI Panther.
