About Me and Bremer Consulting Services

In 8th grade I decided I wanted to become a teacher.  I followed that vision, and for many years I taught secondary math and science.  For 16 years I served as the principal of an alternative high school in West Fargo, ND.  At that time I also coordinated NCA-CASI accreditation at the district level, led the development of school safety and violence prevention, coordinated NWEA-MAP testing, coordinated substance-abuse prevention grants, and conducted some district and school-level studies on an ad-hoc basis.

In 2008 I moved to Winona, MN, because my husband was offered a wonderful career opportunity.   I taught as an adjunct in the Math Department at Winona State University for one semester, and then I decided to put my newly-acquired Ph.D. in Institutional Research, K-12 to use.  I volunteered to conduct a feasibility study for the Winona Area Public School District to help the district decide whether to develop a magnet school.  The district now has an expanding STEM magnet elementary school. I was fortunate to be able to serve on committees that turned concepts into new opportunities for students.

In my spare time I continued to study data analysis and group processes for solving problems and planning new initiatives.  In August of 2011 I began work as a research analyst at Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Coon Rapids, MN.  My duties included querying large relational databases for data on their Carl Perkins grant activities and another Federally-funded grant serving high school and college students.  In addition to analyzing quantitative data, I also employed a number of qualitative research techniques to assist with grant evaluation and planning.

Since returning to Winona, I have established Bremer Consulting Services, and I look forward to working with school districts, colleges, non-profits and other organizations that have visions to realize, problems to solve, and  tough decisions to make.
