I am a second-generation Maverick, following in my father’s footsteps after he graduated from then Mankato State College in 1972. After receiving my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Minnesota State Mankato, I spent over a decade in the corporate world. I returned to Minnesota State Mankato to save lives and change lives by working with our amazing alumni and donors.
If I won the lottery tomorrow, I'd start a non-profit missions organization. And, you know, keep working here.
If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve cheese, meat, and naps.
The most inspiring part of my job is hearing the stories of our amazing alumni and helping them engage with students and the University.
My favorite inspirational quote is life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.
