About Me

Prior to coming to Mary, I was the Catholic school superintendent for Diocese of Crookston, Minnesota, having served as a principal there first. Before that, I taught as an adjunct instructor, while being the community education director at Ada-Borup Schools. I’m happy to serve the Mary community as Director of Alumni Relations and as an adjunct instructor for Mary’s Sport and Leisure Management program. I am also a doctoral student in the education program, studying Higher Education Leadership. In our free time, my husband, Joe, and I enjoy making improvements on our cabin and boating with our children and grandchildren.

Why I’m At Mary

I was attracted to Mary because of the honesty and integrity of the faculty. I first joyfully accepted a position on the Board of Regents in 2018, and later that same year became an employee. God is good!
