College attended: BA in Spanish and Computer Information Systems from Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD & MA in Education Administration, Adult and Higher Education, from The University of South Dakota, Vermillion, SD.

Best residence life memory: I LOVE hall openings and orientation. I remember each from the past nine years. I have a lot of fun meeting and interacting with all the students and their friends and family.

The best thing about my job is: I really enjoy visitors in my office and I like visiting students in the halls too. Through these interactions I get to know so many students and am able to work with them to achieve their college success goals.
