About Me: I grew up in Shawano, Wisconsin, but spent several years in Madison and Minneapolis before moving to Milwaukee to raise my family. I spend my free time mostly with my three daughters and husband, and our sweet, elderly dog, Jones. I have a master's in educational psychology, and I love working with new students and families to help them navigate the college search process and help in any way I can!
Why I work at Marquette: Hands down, the community here is second to none. The students, faculty and staff here are thoughtful, smart and socially conscious, and they genuinely care about each other. I have worked at Marquette for 12 years, and it feels like a family, but one that holds one another to high standards and challenges one another to be better each day. I love that I get to meet new people every day and introduce them to all the ways they can contribute to and benefit from the Marquette community.
My favorite spot on campus: I have quite a few...St. Joan of Arc Chapel, especially on a hot, humid day when it's quiet, cool and dark inside. I also love the Alumni Memorial Union's coffee shop, which is always bustling with people studying and meeting friends. And, the "Marquette Mile" perimeter makes for a nice afternoon walk, and I usually run into students and friends along the way.
