I primarily work with new and transfer students who have not yet selected a major. I also coordinate activities in the Academic Testing Office.
I grew up in the Midwest and completed a BA in Psychology from Bethel University in 1989. In 1991, received my Master’s in Counseling and Student Personnel with an emphasis in College Student Development 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
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.
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.
