I live in Chaska with my husband Matt and our three kids. Lily (20) is a junior at the College of St. Benedict, Lucy (19) is a freshman at UMD, and Leo (16) is a junior at Chaska High School. We have a cabin in Aitkin, MN, where we spend a lot of time in the summer. I love to exercise and hang out with family and friends. I am a number one super fan for my kids!
What do you like most about BA?
I like that BA has small class sizes. It is great to get to know the students and learn what makes them who they are. I like that life lessons are taught in the classroom and through athletics.
Why is it important to have solid academics in addition to good hockey training?
Education is the foundation of success. With a solid education and solid hockey training, BA students will be successful on and off the ice.

Mr. Schwandt, my high school English teacher, had the most significant impact on my life. He showed me that teachers care about their students and want them to achieve their goals.
