Brief biography

I am a third generation UW-La Crosse alum and graduated in 2012 from the Physical Education/Adapted Physical Education program. I was born and raised not too far from the University campus. I come from a family of teachers and knew this was my calling from an early age. I'm passionate about providing physical activity opportunities for persons with disabilities and creating meaningful connections to our UW-L students and community members.
