I joined the non-traditional admissions team at the University of Northwestern in February 2024. As a non-traditional counselor, I get to work with a wide range of prospective students, from high schoolers interested in PSEO and Early College to adult learners ready to finish their degree or step into one of our graduate programs. I am humbled to join such a passionate team of dedicated leaders who are here for you.

My undergraduate path started in 1993. After high school, I enrolled in college to impress a young lady. When we married two years later, school was put on hold. I earned my BA degree in Organizational Leadership as a busy working adult in 2009. You can, too! I am here to help!

Prior to my time with UNW, I spent four years at another local Christian college in various roles with admissions and financial aid and have 10 years of experience with higher education. In my free time, I am still trying to impress that same young lady! We enjoy spending time with our two sons, serving the church, cooking and playing golf together. We have been married for 28 years and live in Eden Prairie.
