Upon graduating from UW Stout in 2008 as a more "mature" student, at 48 years old...I was hired at the Middle School for two years.  In 2010, I was transferred to the High School.  I love being able to challenge the students to strive for higher levels of achievement, artistic skills, vocabulary, writing, as well as problem solving skills. 

Before teaching, I trained in Commercial Art at La Crosse.  From there, I worked at Menards in Eau Claire as an Advertising Artist.  Eau Claire is the home base where all of the newspaper and flyer advertising is created for all Menard stores.  The first item I drew was a toilet - I saved it!  :)  From there I was hired as the Advertising Manager for the Consumers Co-op.  It was a 40 department Department Store in Eau Claire.  I was in charge of all newspaper, flyer, radio and television ads and commercials.  When starting my family I became a stay at home mom and began an in home Sign Painting and Nutrition Business which I currently run on a limited part time basis called "Gumness Naturally Good".

I have been married to my husband Dale since 1982, we have 6 children (5 girls and 1 boy), 1 foriegn exchange girl student from Germany and  grandchildren ( boys and 1 girl).  Dale and I were in the same class graduating from BHS but, we did not date until after high school.  Isn't that cute?  We have always lived in Bloomer.
