Meet the Staff
My Hometown: Albert Lea, Minnesota
Why did I choose ISU: I first came to ISU as an undergraduate student in 1994. While I could have never imagined it back then, I feel very fortunate that it ended up becoming the place where I would eventually earn a graduate degree and start a career in student affairs.
What I like best about working at at ISU: The people---my colleagues and the students. I really enjoy working in a college environment and connecting with others on campus to assist students. You also can’t beat the beauty of our campus in the spring or the fall!
Ames/Des Moines community activities I participate in: I am an Ex-Officio Member for the University Childcare Board of Directors and member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. I also enjoy taking advantage of many cultural/athletic events and outdoor recreation spaces that are available in Ames and the surrounding areas.
