I was born and raised the middle child of five (three sisters and one brother) in Minnesota. Following high school, I attended Willmar Vo-Tech, specializing in general secretarial. I then worked in Willmar for 10 years before going back to school to get an AAS Degree in Office Management from Alexandria Vo-Tech. After graduating, I moved to St. Cloud and worked a number of jobs before joining Amdahl Hearing in 2007, where I was the first employee.
I was married in 1996 to my husband Paul and live in Sartell, MN. I have a stepson, Glen, and step-grandson, Cameron, who live in South Dakota. In our spare time, Paul and I like to go camping in the summer, ride bikes, go to the movies, and go on walks.
