Tell us a little bit about your education and past experience.
I have a bachelor’s degree in musical theatre and performance from Minnesota State University, Moorhead. After graduating from college I have worked as a front desk receptionist or administrative assistant at various medical centers and schools. At my last job while being district receptionist I also worked closely with operations (transportation and technology), business office, HR and facilities taking on numerous tasks.

What did you find appealing about MPA during the interview process?
I loved how they said MPA is a big family. I also appreciated how respectful and cheerful everyone was. I also loved touring around the school and seeing all of the wonderful aspects of the school. It was amazing!

What’s your big dream?
To continue working at a school because I believe in helping our new generation be as successful as possible. Otherwise I dream to be involved in more musicals and start a family.

What are you (and your family, if you so choose) passionate about?
Theatre and dance have been in my life since I was two years old and I couldn’t imagine my life without it. To be able to get up on stage and portray different character or dance until I have no more breath is so gratifying for me. I am also passionate about my family. I love my family and am excited to continue to grow with my boyfriend and start our own family (he has two kids) with fun and adventurous traditions.

What’s a fun fact about you that our community would love to know?
Right now I am in the rehearsal process of the musical White Christmas at Lakeshore Players in White Bear Lake. It’s going to be a great show!!!
