Senior Gift Planning Officer


  • B.S. Office Administration, Northwest Missouri State University, 1992


Northwest has been my "home away from home" since I enrolled in 1983. I began full-time employment in 1984 as a Records Clerk in the Registrar's Office, and then joined the University Advancement team in 1985 as the Administrative Secretary. As the Donor Relations Coordinator from 1993 to 2005, I was responsible for donor stewardship and recognition as well as the administration of the Northwest Foundation's scholarship funds. As a Development Officer from 2005 to 2019, my focus shifted to fundraising for all University initiatives. In my current role as Senior Gift Planning Officer, it is my pleasure to assist Northwest alumni and friends in matching their philanthropic interests with the University's needs and objectives through a variety of major and planned giving options.

My husband, Leo, and I are blessed with two wonderful children, a terrific son-in-law and two delightfully entertaining granddaughters. Time spent with family and friends is more precious than ever.
