I grew up in a small town in rural Minnesota where I found a love for the outdoors and was taught the value of hard work. I am a proud graduate of Minnesota State University where I studied business and finance. My experience in both the education and nonprofit worlds has allowed me to do what I love, connecting with people to find ways to drive their passion and purpose. I am excited to be back at Minnesota State University continuing to connect with our donors, alumni, and students to find ways to drive their passion and help achieve their education goals.
My husband and I have been married for 21 years. We have four boys who keep us active in wrestling, football, golf, and baseball. In my free time, you will find me on the lake, reading, hiking, or learning a new sport. Pickle ball is my new favorite!
In another life, I'm pretty sure I was not in a rock band.
The best piece of advice I've ever been given is don’t be afraid to ask questions
If I weren't so damn good at my job, I'd probably be a semi-pro pickleball player.
My favorite inspirational quote is "Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."
