What I Do

I have been with the Office of Admission since 2009 (prior to Admission, I worked as the Security Captain in the Campus Security and Safety Office for close to ten years).  As the visit coordinator, it is my job to make sure that prospective students and their families have fun, productive visits to campus. I am the one who facilitates every individual campus visit, and I work closely with Jennifer Hirsch, our coordinator of campus visits and events, to plan our larger programs as well.

What I Did

I was raised in Iowa, but spent a number of years abroad abroad when I served in the United States Air Force.

What I Love

I'm a Gulf War veteran, a softball player, a wife, a proud mother of three amazing girls (who keep me VERY busy), and the (slightly less proud) owner of four horses, three dogs, and one cat. When I'm not registering students for visits to Grinnell, I'm happiest at home with my family.
