I am the Director of Recruitment and Outreach Advisor for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and I love my job! I earned a B.A. in Distributed Studies in 1988 from the then Science and Humanities College at Iowa State University and a Masters in Higher Education from Indiana University. After a brief time at Oberlin College in Ohio working in the Department of Residence, I returned to Iowa State to work in Residence Life in 1993 and soon after moved into Academic Advising for the LAS College and have been with the college ever since.

As the Director of Recruitment, I lead and oversee the LAS College efforts to recruit transfer students and students directly from high school. I work closely with the Department of Admissions and all departments in the college in this role. I am also an administrative advisor for the college and serve a key role in retention and orientation activities. I am the point person to coordinate the Admissions Partnership Program for the college (a program that allows students to attend any of the Iowa community colleges in the state while establishing a connection to the academic department they intend to transfer into), and I also advise high school students taking Iowa State classes as part of the Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program for the university.
