I received my Master's degree in Professional Community Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy from MSU, Mankato and am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have an undergraduate degree in psychology and sociology from Wartburg College. Prior to working at St. Anthony I worked as an outpatient therapist, children's mental health social worker, and parent educator. In addition to my work at the school, I have a private practice in New Ulm - Jamie L. Rieser Counseling and Consulting - where I provide therapy to individuals of all ages and families.
My husband and I live in the country near Searles and we have 3 children (Isaiah, Isabel, and Elijah) who attend NUACS and love it here. Outside of work my time is spent attending lots of practices and events for with our children - wrestling, football, baseball, and gymnastics. I also like to organize things, read, and bake!
