She serves as the first contact for people visiting or calling the ISU Alumni Center, responding or directing their inquiries to the proper ISUAA staff member or campus department. She coordinates and supervises the student staff assignments and provides support to staff as needed.
Hometown: Holstein, Iowa
Favorite ISU tradition: VEISHEA parade! We have such great memories of watching the floats with our three children and friends, no matter the weather -- picture-perfect Iowa spring days, pouring rain, or even snow!
Favorite food: traditional Iowa-raised steak, baked potato with sour cream, sweet corn, and fresh tomatoes
What I like about my job: Connecting with Iowa Staters of all ages
In my spare time, I like to: travel to see family -- kids and grandkids from the Jersey Shore to Colorado to Portland, Oregon!
Something unique that most people don't know about me: I spent two summers working in small villages in Germany while at Iowa State.
