I graduated from Pipestone High School and Willmar Area Vocational Technical School in Minnesota before moving to Sioux Falls. I worked for the Court Services Department of the Unified Judicial System for 15 years and then was self-employed and worked various short-term positions. I worked at the Public Defender’s Office for eight years until joining Jeff Larson Law (now Resolute Law Firm) in 2013. My husband and I have been married 40 years and have two grown sons. I am an avid fan of the Minnesota Vikings and the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
