Heyo! Thanks for dropping in.

Allow me to tell you all a little, okay, a lot, about myself. First off, I am a Duluth native (Go Greyhounds!) and a self-proclaimed Lake Superior enthusiast. Summer, spring, winter, or fall – our Lake is breathtaking and beautiful in every season. If you haven’t seen it yet, drop everything that you’re doing and come to Duluth immediately; I promise you it’ll be worth the trip.

I enrolled at the College in 2002 as an undecided major, but with some helpful guidance and gentle prodding from my advisor Tammy Ostrander, I discovered the wonderful world of Communications. A few courses later, I was hooked (thanks again, Tammy!). During my time at St. Scholastica, I worked as the Communications Department’s student employee, wrote articles for The Cable, taught step aerobics in our fabulous Wellness Center, participated in the Honors program, peer mentored in our Dignitas program, completed two separate internships in sports writing and local government, and made my theatrical debut on-stage as Cass in the zany production of Wonder of the World. These activities made my experience at St. Scholastica incredibly enriching; they represent some of my favorite memories during my four years at CSS.

Post-graduation, I worked in Duluth, married my college sweetheart Keith…

 adopted a Shih Tzu puppy (the other love of my life)…

and eventually found my way back to St. Scholastica for graduate school in 2008. That same fall, I was hired as an undergraduate admissions counselor to work with and recruit prospective students, in other words, my dream job! Currently, I work with students who live in the western suburbs of Minneapolis and central and southwestern Minnesota. The best part about my job? Being able to give back to the alma mater that gave me so much as a student and alumna.

This spring, I graduated from the College again with a master’s dual-degree in Business Administration and Management; what can I say, I love being a student.

Now that I’m done with graduate school, I’ve enjoyed falling back into some of my favorite pastimes: cooking (Martha Stewart wannabe!), reading (currently engrossed in this Nook book), watching TV on DVD (brilliant!), pretend running (this means I run races for the t-shirt only) and of course, spending time with Keith and Olive (our sweet poochie who got her name from this movie).

So, that’s me! Give me a holler some time; I’m looking forward to getting a chance to meet you, too!
