I grew up in Red Wing, Minnesota. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Communication from The University of Tampa, a small private college in Florida and my Master's degree in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. I have worked at Gustavus for fifteen years, first as Assistant Director and then Director of Student Activities. In the fall of 2013 I accepted a promotion to Assistant Dean of Students, coordinating the campus conduct system among many other duties. It's a welcome and wonderful new challenge for me!
My family consists of husband Jeff and three daughters--Breeley, Piper, and Lyric. We also have two dogs: Locke, an 80 pound black lab mix, and Fletcher, a springer spaniel. Both are rescues from local shelters. In the teeny amount of spare time I have for myself I am a "mother runner."
