Brief biography

Hometown: Menomonee Falls, WI

Throughout my career, I have worked in several different administrative offices - including Purchasing, Registrar's Office, Business Services, and Career Services - for several different colleges and universities including; University of Evansville (IN), Viterbo University (WI), Luther College (IA), and UW-La Crosse. I love the energy and enthusiasm of students on campuses!

I and my partner of 41 years are both UWL alumni and have three grown daughters - the oldest of whom is also a UWL alum. We are very fortunate that all five of our grandchildren live within a 15 mile radius. I love family time and watching our grandkids' activities, doing anything outdoors during any season, and everything that goes along with growing a vegetable garden.

Current courses at UWL

No current courses but I thoroughly enjoyed "Introduction to Environmental Studies", ENV 101, a couple years ago.


Bachelor's degree in Recreation (BS), UW-La Crosse
