AA from Clinton Community College and a BA from the University of Iowa in Communication Studies.
Why Community College?:
I know from experience that community college provides the opportunity for all people to enrich their lives through learning. I want people to know that when I talk about community college being accessible, affordable and a reality that it is the truth.
I was a Paul B. Sharar Foundation Scholarship recipient when I attended Clinton Community College and my experience was enveloped by people who wanted to see me succeed.
I am proud to be able to work with such a dedicated team of professionals that are here every day to help students find their path in life. Attending community college changed my life. I believe it can change yours.
The best thing about working with students:
It is my desire to help students recognize the potential in themselves. I value the differences in each individual student and I learn so much from our interactions. Every life has a story.
Other random information:
After graduating from the University of Iowa, I served in Student Life and as the Director of Career Services at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. From there I served as the Job Location Developer at California State University, San Bernardino in San Bernardino, California. Finally, before coming back home, I served as the Coordinator of Student Activities and as the Director of Student Life at Front Range Community College in Boulder County, Colorado.
Serving students is my passion. I absolutely love providing opportunities for students to recognize that greater success comes from getting involved in your campus and in your community.
I cheer for Iowa Hawkeyes football, love spending time watching sports with friends and enjoy listening to live music. I adore my family and if I’m on vacation you’ll probably find me in Nashville.
