I came to Media Arts after working for almost 11 years in Student Affairs here at UM. I am very excited about the opportunity to join this awesome program that continues to develop and grow. I am impressed by the tremendous abilities of our students and by the technology they work with. I began my career in higher education with Park University while living in the beautiful state of Washington. It is humbling to help our young people as they study and work on their education and goals. I am married to a wonderful guy. We have two amazing children and 5 grandchildren, who are all my pride and joy! My favorite pastimes, besides spending time with the grandchildren, are quilting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, reading, camping and taking a ride on the Harley with my hubby.
