My work experience lies in road construction and construction management. I previously taught Construction Management and Heavy/Highway Construction at Ferris State University. I was the National Construction Educator of the year in 1997, and was the first female to be awarded this honor. I have been teaching in the UW Colleges since 1998. I am one the co-advisors for Future Engineers and the PTK honor society. I teach engineering courses for UW-Barron County as well as UW Colleges.
