Youth & Adult Development Director
(Aquatic Department, Youth Sports, Adult Recreation and Youth Summer Camps)
I was born and raised in Waupun, where I graduated from Central Wisconsin Christian School. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL in Business, with a Minor in Coaching. While at Trinity I earned a position as Student Manager for the Fitness Center, and was the Intramural Director where I learned many skills that prepared me for my new position. It is a pleasure to be working here at the YMCA of Dodge County, and I am excited to be able to give back to the community that has already given so much to me.
Assistant Youth & Adult Development Director
I grew up in Burnett, Wisconsin and went to school in Horicon. After High School I went on to College at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse where I studied to become a Recreation Management Professional. While in school I worked at various places which helped me develop my love and appreciation for recreation, along with the determination to help provide recreation for everyone. I’ve worked for the YMCA of La Crosse as a Surround Care Assistant Teacher, the City of Beaver Dam Community Activities and Services as the Recreation Supervisor and Camp Counselor. I am excited to work for the YMCA and see what new adventures I will be able to take.
