In 2010, when I joined an environmental services team, my friendly and crafty talents were discovered and within two years I was a part of an amazing Life Enrichment Team. Mentors spent many years helping me develop more skills and talents, they helped me grow into the professional I am today, and achieve a goal I never thought possible. I graduated from Ridgewater college in 2017 with an A.A.S. for Activity Director with NCCAP certification (along with AL, MC, PC specialties). I have also gone on to receive a CDCS (certified Dementia Communication Specialist) and CMDCP (Certified Montessori Dementia Care Professional) from ICCDP.


Fun Fact: In 2014 I challenged the CNA test in MN (and passed on the first try!) and have kept my standing ever since. I have my CDL to drive the bus and I am NOT a fan of Bingo!


In 2015 I joined the MAPA board as Treasurer at the nudging of my College Professor and moved to President in 2021. I currently am the Community Life Director for Chaska Heights, A Lifespark Community. I have been so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful team!  Please feel free to reach out to me or any board member with any questions or ideas.
