Hello! I am a 2003 graduate of Redwood Valley High School. After completing my college education and working for 5+ years in the St.Cloud area, my husband Aaron and I, along with our 3 children, Addison (11), Evan (7), and Nora (4), decided to move back home to Redwood Falls to raise our family and grow with the community. I am very excited to get to know all of the wonderful students and people that make the Redwood Area School District awesome! Let's have a happy and healthy school year.
