I graduated from Iowa State University (go Cyclones!) with a degree in Communication Studies, Public Relations. From the moment I stepped onto campus, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in alumni relations and was fortunate to find a role at UCLA that allowed me to work with alumni, student affairs, and academic departments as I designed fundraising initiatives for the Annual Fund. When it was time to come back home, as we began to grow our family, I pursued fundraising roles at both the Carlson School of Management and the Univesity of Minnesota Foundation.

As a mom to three boys at Frassati, I was over the moon to partner my professional passion with my personal passion. Frassati changed my family’s course in life, and growing fundraising and engagement initiatives for our community is a dream come true!

In our free time, I love making plans for adventures with my crew, like a day trip for hiking, a cross-country road trip, or an adventure out to the West coast. However, my Peloton and weight-rack are where I like to spend my time most.
