Why I Love UD

I love UD's approach to educate the whole person--forming students through both academic excellence and a commitment to fostering leadership and service skills. I truly believe that UD students are equipped both to excel in their vocations and make a positive mark in the world. UD is one amazing place! 


Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, University of Dayton
M.A. in History, Ashland Theological Seminary
B.A. in History, The Ohio State University

I was born and raised in the small town of DeGraff, Ohio and began my career in higher education at Ashland University, working in a student services position while in graduate school. After graduation, I was hired at the University of Dayton initially in financial aid, and have since transitioned to working in admission and now work with students across all of our recruitment areas, including first year, transfer, and our community college partnerships. I love working with students in a college environment--my college experience was fantastic and made me into the person I am today--and hope to work in higher education for the rest of my career! Outside of work I love watching sports (especially the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals!) and enjoying the outdoors with my family.
