I’ve called Dickinson County my home for most of my adult life. I was born in Webb, Iowa and was delivered by my “can-do pioneer” Grandmother.
I graduated with a Master of Science Degree from Minnesota State University. My working years were spent in some form of public library service. I was Spirit Lake Public Librarian, a consultant for the Northwest Regional Library and was the Spirit Lake Public School Media Specialist for Elementary and Middle School. I’ve continue my life-long learning by attending Iowa Lakes Community College 3rd Age Classes.
