Aaron and Laura both believe education is a key foundation for a life full of health, wellness, responsibility, and happiness. Laura is a school counselor in our local Wausau School District, and she previously taught middle-school math. After graduating from high school in Appleton, Laura received her B.S. in Education from Minnesota State University Moorhead, and later accomplished her M.S. from the University of Dayton. Aaron received his B.A. from Lawrence University where he studied both economics and philosophy, and he later studied accounting at Sinclair Community College. Aaron has also obtained his private-pilot-license, enjoys learning wood-working, and achieved his Level 4 USA Hockey Coaching certification. For Aaron and Laura - education is much more broad than just school; it encompasses the entire individual, is mental and emotional and physical, and should be a life-long process. Given the deep-seated roots of education in their family, it's no surprise that creating a leading education system and nurturing the next generation is at the forefront of Aaron's campaign goals.
