I have taught at Aquinas for 20 years and I look forward to many more. I enjoy listening to classical and jazz music and performing in the Winona Municipal Band every summer. In my spare time I enjoy biking and scrapbooking. I have been involved in music education since 1982 and hope to continue sharing my passion for music with students.
