I grew up in Holland (Europe) and immigrated with my family to the U.S. when I was 18 years old.
I attended West Texas State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Then I attended Texas Tech University and graduated with a Master of Education degree.
I taught 3 years in Denver City, 6 years in Lubbock and have been teaching 28 years in Dalhart.
I am married to Nick Olson, who is the Director/Curator of the XIT Museum.
We have 2 children and 2 grandkids.
I love to be outdoors and spending time with my family.
