Assistant Vice President of University Advancement

Chief Finance Officer of the Northwest Foundation


  • B.S. Accounting, Northwest Missouri State University, 1985


I joined Northwest’s Office of University Advancement in September 2007 after a 20+ year as a certified public accountant. Working for a regional firm in the St. Louis, Mo. area, my client industries included auto dealerships, construction companies, banks and non-profit organizations. After moving to Maryville, I prepared taxes for local individuals and businesses. I currently serve as the executive director of advancement and the chief finance officer for the Northwest Foundation, Inc.

My family and I returned to Maryville in 1997 when my husband, Mike, joined the history faculty and now acts as Associate Provost and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Our eldest son Danny is a mechanical engineer employed by Accenture. He resides in Boston with his wife, Samantha. Our younger son, David is an engineering major and hopes to work in the aerospace industry.
