Student Academic Services

I am the oldest of six children, born and raised in rural South Dakota; I was transplanted with my family to Lynden at age 18.  I have been immersed in Christian education from kindergarten through college. I attended Dordt College and graduated in 1996 with a degree in English - Secondary Education.  I taught 7th and 8th grade at Ebenezer Christian School for five years, then became mom to twins in 2002.

I love learning and helping others learn, and I consider it a privilege to be a part of the Lynden Christian community as a Discovery therapist.  

I am married to Mike, an engineer at Oxbo Corporation. Our two children, Emma and Hendrick, attend Lynden Christian. We are members of Bethel Christian Reformed Church in Lynden. Our small acreage gives us plenty to do in our spare time!
