Family and Pets
I have a husband, James, two children – Laurin ’08 and Nelson ’10. We have a fun but somewhat neurotic rescue dog named Archie.
Favorite Place on Campus
I love the Chapel of the Good Shepherd. Sitting in that space fills me with memories and calms me.
Favorite thing to do in Faribault
I am a huge fan of the apple orchard up the hill from our school and look forward to their opening every August. I also love going to my local farmers’ market – Twiehoff’s.
I love to read and I think it’s tough to name a favorite. I like reading Cormac McCarthy and John Irving. I also enjoy Alice Munro.
Joan Benoit Samuelson - she won the first Olympic marathon for women in Los Angeles in 1984. She has continued to be a super competitive distance runner into her 50s.
Distance running, baking banana bread for my advisees, hanging out with my best friend and husband, James.
