Faculty & Staff

I grew up in western Massachusetts and the St. Louis area, where I graduated from Kirkwood High School.  In the fall of 1997, I came to Kirksville.  I 've stuck around earning my BA and my MA in English here at Truman.  Before I became an Academic Advisor, I worked as a bookstore clerk, a baker, and taught classes in English and Public Speaking at Moberly Area Community College.  My main pastime outside of work, is keeping track of my two children, but when I have some free time, I like to spend it riding bikes, hiking, fishing, and baking treats for my friends and family.
