I began visiting the Chequamegon Bay area the summer of 2010, and I fell in love with the water, the forests, and the community. The following summer I moved here. My passion for local, healthy food led me to start a small farm with my partner where we raise heritage breed chickens, pigs, and turkeys. I started as Northland's transfer enrollment coordinator in February 2012. What I love most about my job is being able to work with and help transfer students who are eager to go in a new direction and make positive changes for themselves. The Northland community is wonderfully supportive and positive. I feel grateful to be a part of it and to live in such a unique and beautiful area of the world.

It depends on the season. In the fall and spring my favorite activities are hiking, camping, and paddling. In the winter I enjoy the many and varied cross country ski trails and alpine skiing in the area. In the summer I get to the Lake as often as possible - to windsurf, picnic, bonfire, read, or sail. Bicycling is also a favorite of mine, along with berry/apple picking. In any season I am consumed with gardening and farming - it brings me great joy to plant, to raise healthy animals, and to harvest.
Passionate, welcoming, adventurous.
