Assistant Director, Office for Student Leadership, Involvement, and Community Engagement, CSU
Co-Instructor, EDHE 673 – Student Development Theory
I was born and raised in Ames, Iowa, but have lived in Fort Collins for more than 15 years. Within the SAHE program, I co-teach Student Development Theory. I have an undergraduate degree in Genetics and Cell Biology from the University of Minnesota, an M.S. in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Colorado State, and a doctorate in Education and Human Resource Studies from Colorado State. My research interests center on service-learning, food insecurity on college campuses, and racial attitudes.
Outside of work I love to hang with my fabulous partner, Chris (who works in the CSU Counseling Center), our three spirited children, Rigley (age 8), Walden (age 5), and Guthrie (age 1.5), and our legendary puggle, Euchre. Together we love to have adventures of all kinds.
