Northwest ND Site Director

I've lived in Williston for the past 25 years, along with my husband. My husband and I have five children. When I'm not traveling all over North Dakota for sporting events, I love spending time with my family at our cabin on Lake Sakakawea.

At Mary, we value community. That’s why we’ve joined forces with your hometown college to offer you a world-class education where you are. You won't have to relocate to find your purpose and prepare for a rewarding career in health care, education, or business leadership.

In keeping with our ongoing effort to support growing communities statewide, we are extending our reach to meet pressing needs in the Williston area and beyond. Our vision is to serve the region and equip you for lifelong flourishing by providing invaluable educational and workforce development services at the lowest possible cost.
