"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 dogs, two cats and several chickens. My daughter, Chase, is a freshman at OWU who plans to major in Zoology and will compete pole vault for the OWU track team. My son, Jackson, is a high school junior who is an avid snowboarder and also pole vaults for the Hayes HS track team. Our family loves traveling, camping and kayaking and other outdoorsy activities. In my spare time, I enjoy running. 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.
