I grew up in a small town in Iowa and attended Drake University for both my undergraduate and graduate programs. I taught for three years and then went on to become a secondary school counselor for the next ten years. After a move to Denver, I pursued my passion for working in higher education and took a position at Metropolitan State University of Denver. I spent almost three years at MSU Denver before transitioning to ACC.
I have three wonderful boys and we all enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, swimming, biking, fishing, and exploring.
