For seventeen years, I taught nursing at Fox Valley Technical College. I was Chairperson on both the Peabody Manor Foundation Board and the Outagamie County Board, where I served for 24 years. I also currently serve on the Tri County Dental Clinic Board, the Bubolz Nature Center, Boy’s & Girls Club, and the Appleton Board of Health.
I am a WIAA official. I am a former referee of basketball and softball games (17 years) and former referee of volleyball games (25 years).
I received my bachelor of science degree in nursing/education and management from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and my master of science in nursing education from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. Active in many community organizations, I have lived in Appleton for 48 years with my husband, John.
