Earned and Honorary Degrees
MS, University of Central Missouri
BS, University of Central Missouri
I grew outside of St. Louis, Missouri, but I've also lived in western North Carolina and eastern South Dakota. My background has focused on natural resources and ecology. I worked for an environmental consulting firm based in the Smoky Mountains. I later transitioned to teaching in higher education, where I also advised both current and incoming students. Our family moved to Ashland to join the Northland Community and we love being in the northwoods!
I love the environmental focus of not only the academics, but in everyday life at Northland.
I work with first-year students from northern Wisconsin, as well as several states in the central Midwest and the northeast.
I love hiking, nature photography, tie dyeing, and home renovations.
