About Me

Originally from Thief River Falls, Minnesota, I graduated from the University of North Dakota where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Master of Science in Higher Education. I joined the University of Mary Student Success Center in August 2018. My past and current professional memberships include the American College Personnel Association where I served as a presenter for the Midwest Conference, and the National Academic Advising Association, NACADA, through which I am part of the Region 6 Advising Mentoring Program. I believe I found my true professional vocation in advising and teaching!

Why I’m At Mary

A passionate student affairs advocate, I was driven to the University of Mary, because of their commitment to student success, the institution's Catholic identity, and its strong sense of community.
