Joined Northwest in October, 2005

Assistant Director of Operations - Residential Life & Auxiliary Services

Greetings! My journey to Northwest started in my hometown of Mexico, MO. After high school, I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Truman State University, and later, my Master's Degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I have worked for housing programs at a variety of schools and enjoy this field immensely. As Residential Life's Operations Coordinator, I work behind the scenes the best possible service to our residents by managing room selection, online processes, and more. Northwest is a wonderful place to work, take classes, and live.  I lived on campus for six years and enjoyed every minute of it. We have an outstanding staff and our students amaze me everyday with their leadership abilities and spirit. If I can be of any assistance, just let me know!
