Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Prevention Coordinator in Dean of Students Office

I grew up in Le Sueur, MN and am a veteran of the United States Navy. For many years I have worked in the Healthcare profession as a Nurse (LPN).  I have been a member of the Gustavus Community since 2005 where I started my career in the Health Service office.  Throughout my years at Gustavus I have developed many relationships, both on and off campus, related to sexual misconduct and policy which has lead me to the role as the Title IX Coordinator.  

My husband Rex and I have two children.  Our son Drew lives and works in Nashville, TN. Our daughter Abby, along with her husband Matt, live in Le Sueur with their two children Bram and Vivi.  We also have a very sweet yellow lab named Barley who brings joy to our home on a daily basis.
