    Education & Experience

    I’ve been working in student affairs for over 25 years. Some of my most rewarding experiences took place while I worked in residence life, student activities, and diversity education. I spend much of my time on the retention and employabilty of our students. I am hyper-focused on student success initiatives, especially those that allow us to decrease the achievement gap. I have a bachelor’s in theatre arts from Central Washington University (and yes, I use that degree every single day), and a master’s in college student personnel from Western Illinois University, and a Ph.D. in educational leadership from Colorado State University.
