Brief bio

I am a life-long Minnesotan. I love dogs, reading and cooking. I worked at the Minneapolis StarTribune as my first job out of college, so journalism is in my blood. Then, I found a new career path putting my journalism skills to work for public schools. I worked in communications for an adult basic education consortium and two Twin Cities area school districts before coming to the University and the School of Social Work in 2007.
