School: JWP High School
 
I hold both my undergraduate and graduate degrees (Communication and Education) from Minnesota State University, Mankato.
I have worked with Educational Talent Search for over 25 years. Prior to my time with ETS, I worked as a college recruiter, a college placement director, a youth counselor, and a job development specialist. I love working with TRIO programs 
 
I have had the opportunity to meet some of the very best people I know, through this experience. I truly believe that with an education, motivation, and plan, you can make your dreams come true. I have three grown children and two beautiful granddaughters. 
I love to spend time with family and friends, in my spare time

I grew up in Iowa and decided to go to school out of state at Minnesota State University- Mankato where I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Community Health Education. 
Within my education I found a passion for helping others and working with people in need. In my free time I like to run and see my family and friends.

I graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2013 with my Bachelor of Science in Business Management; and in 2016, achieved my Masters of Arts in Higher Education in Student Affairs. 
These degrees fuel my love for education, and my drive to help each student pursue it. I live in Mankato with my husband and puppy Edna. In my free time, I play volleyball, run, bike, and spend as much time outside as possible with family and friends.
