Hometown: Barnum, MN

Department or Office: Admissions.

Where did you attend college, grad school, doctoral school? B.S. in Communicating Arts at UW-Superior, M.S. in College Counseling and Student Development at St. Cloud State University.

Programs/services that you coordinate/provide (only list the names): I coordinate prospective student's campus visitsm which includes setting up meetings with faculty/staff on campus. I also supervise and train the campus tour guides/student ambassadors and oversee/implement the majority of events coordinated through the Admissions Office.

In one sentence what is your advice for students to be successful? Don't settle, realize your potential, work hard, have fun, and laugh every day because there is something amazing about every day!

What is your favorite book? This changes so often based on how I'm feeling and interested in, but today it is "Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court" by John Wooden and Steve Jamison. I love Woodenisms!

One fun fact about you: I am overly obsessed with my planner. Just ask me about it. I won't shut up. Check out Erincondren.com and you will see what I mean if you like planners as well. Ok, they are slightly on the expensive side, but after trying to find the planner that works for me and wasting money, it is totally worth it. Plus you always get $10 off on your next purchase (aka your next planner)!
