I am from Owatonna and graduated from Owatonna High School. I was a wrestler for Owatonna for many of my school years. I was also very involved in the athletic training program throughout my high school years. The knowledge I gained from these athletic training experiences have been invaluable in my life.
Following high school, I attended Southwest State University where I was on the wrestling team, wrestling at 126 pounds. I then transferred to Mankato State where I graduated in 2001 with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education grades 1-6. I later completed my Masters through St. Mary's college in 2006. In July of 2012 I completed my Administrative Specialist licensure from Minnesota State University - Mankato.
I married my high school sweetheart, Brittany in 1997. Brittany is a dental hygienist working in Owatonna. We have two children, Kiya, who was born in 2002 and Kelton, who was born in 2004. Kiya and Kelton both attend JWP schools. Kiya says her favorite teacher to date is Mr. Erler, and Kelton says school is too easy for him.
In my spare time, if I have any, I enjoy golfing, working with my dad in the woodshop and participating in my children's activities. I am also an avid card player and am sure to let everyone know when my team wins.
I am very proud of the education program at JWP and being part of this school district.
