I’m a first-generation college graduate and a lifelong resident of Southern Minnesota. Mankato was only supposed to be a stopping point in my career, but I fell in love with the area…and with a guy from North Mankato. We married in 2011 and have two rambunctious boys who keep us busy. Throughout my working history I’ve dabbled in several career sectors finding that education is my true calling. It’s an honor to be a small part of helping so many others achieve their dreams: students obtaining a college degree and the generous donors who make it possible.
If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve lip synching parades ala Ferris Bueller style with a dance off finale judged by Paula Abdul.
If I weren't so damn good at my job, I'd probably be a cruise ship activities director.
My favorite word that has no direct English translation is “bazinga.”
My favorite inspirational quote is “Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything".
