About me: This is my second year at SAGE Academy, and I absolutely love it. SAGE puts students first and we are all in this together. This year will be a year like no other due to COVID and I know we will overcome any obstacles together. I attended Bemidji State University for my Bachelors degree, and University of Northern Iowa, where I received my Masters degree. I have worked in schools for 8 years and love being a school counselor. When I'm not at SAGE, I love to be active and work out at the gym. When its nice out, you can find me outside biking or walking my new dog, Nessie. She is training to be a Therapy dog and getting comfortable at SAGE. When I find time, I love to travel and can't wait for international travel to open back up. Please reach out if you have any questions or just want to say hi.
