Director of Residential Life

Hi everyone! I'm the Director of Residential Life here at Northwest. I started my career in Res life as an RA at Southwest Missouri State University (now Missouri State University) I was also an Assistant Hall Director, RHA Advisor and Hall Director there. While at SMSU I received my Bachelor's Degree in Math Education and my Master's Degree in Educational Administration. After that I moved to Northwest as an Area Coordinator (go East side!). I was in that position for 5 years before becoming the Assistant Director, and now, the Director. I love the Res Life department here and I love working at Northwest. In my spare time I hang out with my family. My husband and I have 3 of the best kids in the world. In the rest of my spare time (there's not much) I love to be outside working on my flower and vegetable gardens. I also like to read, do any kind of sports, scrapbook, logic problems and anything crafty. That's me. After being at Northwest for 14 years I know quite a bit of history so if you need anything, just ask.
