I have lived in the Vermillion School District since 2011. The past few years I have been substitute teaching within the District at all 4 schools. Prior to that, I was the Business Manager for Curry Seed in Elk Point. Other positions that will help me in this new role are Grant Writer/Grant Administrator and Adjunct Professor of Accounting at WITCC and Morningside University. I also have been a volunteer Treasurer with a variety of charitable organizations. I have a Bachelors Degree in Accounting from Morningside and an Associate Degree from WITCC. I passed the South Dakota Certified Public Accountancy exam before I graduated college.
I was the first in my family to earn a bachelor’s degree. If not for organizations like this foundation, I would not have had the educational opportunities that I did. I am passionate about providing opportunities for ALL students.
My Husband is the Maintenance Foreman for the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System in rural Vermillion. We have 2 children and 4 grandchildren, 3 Saint Bernards, a mini horse and a goat.
