My husband and I resided in several cities before settling in Beavercreek, Ohio, where we have lived and raised our family for the last 21 years. During those 21 years, I have had many opportunities to be on the University of Dayton campus for community events. It is now wonderful to be part of the staff. I feel blessed to call this campus home not only as a staff member but also as a UD Flyer parent!

Before joining the School of Engineering staff, I worked with the University's Enrollment Management and Marketing as Assistant Campus Visit Coordinator for two years.

Why I Love the University of Dayton

Community! The sense of community is ever present on the University of Dayton campus. Little things like “hello’s” from strangers and having someone hold open the door. The interaction between faculty, staff and students is amazing. The University is a friendly, supportive, faith-filled place to call home. I feel very blessed to be part of this family.
