Having grown up and lived in Prior Lake for most of my life, I understand the needs and interests of this district. I graduated from Prior Lake High School in 1989 and went on to a successful career at St. Cloud State University that included a year as student body president. I graduated magna cum laude with a BS in Accounting in 1994. I was a CPA for six years with KPMG and Deloitte& Touche. In 1996 I founded StepStoneGroup, a local creative and web development agency employing nine professionals in Savage.
