I was raised in New Berlin, Wisconsin and I come from a family of educators with both of my parents and one of my siblings serving the community as teachers. My background is also grounded in education having spent the first 12 years of my professional career working in post-secondary education and expanding access to technical training in the trades. That career path took me all over the country as I was able to use my business background and experience to expand the school's national footprint and open new campus locations in Philadelphia and Dallas. Having lived all over the United States and two years in Kenya, I developed an appreciation of the great diversity in the world and empathy for the various challenges that we all face. I currently reside in New Berlin with my two sons.
