I am a music teacher at Irving Pertzsch Elementary in the Onalaska School District. In 1992, I graduated from UW-La Crosse with a degree in Music Education. I received my Master of Education-Professional Development from UW-La Crosse in 2003. In 2011, I received my Principal License from Viterbo University. My husband and I have lived in the 9th District since 1994. We have 3 children who attend La Crosse Public Schools.
