Upon graduation from St. Olaf, she studied toward her Montessori certification at St. Catherine's and has taken a handful of Suzuki teacher training courses as well as post-graduate courses in Orff and Dalcroze.

In her free time she enjoys being outdoors, a daily iced coffee, and indulging in her love of biography
