I have been involved in the world of disability advocacy since my son Josh was born almost 21 years ago. I have worked with the Arc of MN in a Quality Assurance role and the Chisago Lakes Achievement Center in Case Management. I am an active member and volunteer with Special Olympics MN, Pacer, and The Down Syndrome Association of MN.

I am active in the Chisago Lakes Area as a Board Member of the Chisago Lakes Chamber and Branch Administrator for Edward Jones.

My husband, Dean and twin sons, Josh and Jacob reside in Chisago City.
