"I'm an OWU graduate, class of 1995. I've been working at OWU since 1997 and love what I do. Working for my alma mater and being able to share my experiences with prospective students/families is what I enjoy most about being an admission counselor."

A Little Bit About Me

I’m married, with two kids, two cats and several chickens. My daughter, Chase, is a sophomore at OWU who is majoring in Zoology and Environmental Studies and is a pole vaulter on the track team.  My son, Jackson, is a high school senior who is an avid snowboarder and also pole vaults for the Hayes HS track team. Our family loves traveling, camping and kayaking, skiing and snowboarding and other outdoorsy activities.  In my spare time, I enjoy running and attending various exercise classes. I've run lots of races, including several half marathons and 2 full marathons!

As an admission counselor, I really enjoy getting to know students/families and helping them through what can be a tumultuous college search process. A favorite moment for me is seeing a student I’ve recruited graduate four years later—a different, more mature, more worldly adult—and knowing that I played a role (even if only a small one) in that student’s transformation.
