I've been working in higher education for about 25 years, the last 17 here at the University of Minnesota. My experience has been varied, including residence life, career services, financial aid, student activities, and transfer advising and admissions. When I'm not working, I love to travel (recent destinations include Indonesia, Iceland, and Argentina), go for a run (I'm a two-time marathon finisher), and explore the restaurant scene in the Twin Cities. 

Why the University of Minnesota? 
Everything! I love to learn about the research that is happening here at the U, especially in CFANS, and how we are working to make the world a better place.
