I'm a graduate of Pierce High School, earned my B. A. in English and Education at Mt. Marty College in Yankton, SD, attended graduate school at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS, and earned my Masters Degree from Fort Hays State University in Kansas. 

After living in Kansas for 24 years, I returned to the area in 2012 and have been teaching at BC since August of 2012. 

My husband Fred has two grown children, Tiffany and Kody, and Tiffany's family includes her husband Gregg Neesen and their sons Cooper and Callum.   After losing my son, Brett, as the result of a car accident in 2011, my husband's family has been the biggest blessing in my life and I am truly thankful  they have also become another part of my family.
