In addition to teaching private music lessons at IGLLS, I am a bus driver for the Spencer Schools, serve as chair of the Spencer ADA Council, direct the choir at Christ the King Lutheran and am an editorial assistant at the Spencer Daily Reporter. In my free time I enjoy reading, walking, biking, cooking and keeping up with my siblings John in Des Moines, Sue in Golden, CO and David in Forest City.
My parents were both music educators. My brother and sister-in-law are band directors in Forest City, IA. My grandfathers were both ministers in the Presbyterian and Methodist church.
Music has always been a part of my life and its fun to share this gift with our young people at IGLLS so they can add their praises to our Loving Lord in song.
