Duties:
I primarily work with new and transfer students who have not yet selected a major.  I also coordinate activities in the Academic Testing Office.

Background:
I grew up in the Midwest and completed a Bachelor's degree from Bethel University, and a Master’s degree from Minnesota State University - Mankato.

Past Employment (UW - Eau Claire):
1992-1997 Residence Hall Director
1997-1998 Acting Service-Learning Coordinator
1998- 2001 Admissions Counselor/Transfer Coordinator

Interests:
I enjoy a variety of activities including bicycling, kayaking, motorcycling, traveling, and remodeling.

Were you undeclared?
Yes, I really was unsure what I wanted to do.  It took me a while to figure out a major, and I certainly felt the pressure to declare something.

Something fun!
I’ve taken two big motorcycle trips.  In 1995, I drove 12,000 miles around the U.S. camping and exploring the country.  In 1996, I went with my father on a 7,500 mile trip to the Arctic Circle (via Alaska) and back.
