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 an Area Coordinator at Northwest, I work with our Hall and Complex Directors to provide the best possible service to our residents. Personally, I feel that Northwest is a wonderful place to work, take classes, and live (just ask my dog, a Keeshond named Dakota!). 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!
