Brief biography

I grew up in Mid-Michigan and completed my bachelors degree at Western Michigan University. My time in residence life led to my hall director job at Ferris State University. The next step was completing my masters in counseling at UW-Platteville while working as graduate hall director. UWL has been my work home since 1994, and I continue to enjoy my career working with all of the great students, faculty, and staff!  


May 1994: Masters in Counselor Education - University of Wisconsin–Platteville
