Faculty & Staff

I grew up in East Lansing, Michigan but have lived in Kirksville for long enough that it now feels like home.  I received my BA from Calvin College (History major and German minor) and a MS from Truman in Biology.  I have been an Academic Advisor for over ten years. Please feel free to ask me about the myriad jobs that I have held. When I am not at work, I enjoy walking my dogs, gardening, reading, and playing and listening to music.  

Two of my favorite quotes are: "Get messy... make mistakes." (Ms. Frizzle)  and "You can't always get what you want... you get what you need."  (Rolling Stones)
