My move to Holland four years ago is, I hope my last move! I grew up in St. Paul, MN and went to college for two years in Illinois. I completed my degree in Elementary Education at Carthage College in Wisconsin. From there I lived in in a few different suburbs of Chicago. My last position was as Academic Advisor at The Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg, IL, where I helped students who majored in Audio Production, Game Art & Design, Animation, and Media Arts. My motivation in moving to Holland was to be closer to my son, daughter-in-law and three wonderful grandchildren! I have been truly blessed to be a part of their lives.
