I am truely an "Idahonian". I was born in Idaho and have lived in many locations within the State. I met my husband at the University of Idaho and have also had the fun of living throughout the USA as he pursued his career in Electrical Engineering. He is currently a professor at KSU. We have two sons, one an English teacher and big wall climber, the other an Industrial Psychology major and computer game reviewer.

First Impression of Manhatan
Purple Power. The purple emphasis was a touch overwhelming at first. Now we happily don our purple shirts and enjoy the fun of being part of an enthusiastic community of KSU supporters.
Involvement in campus, church, and community activities, weekends exploring Kansas, coffee at a local coffee shop, & cozy evenings at home.
On Academic Advising
I see myself as a facilitator helping students decide what career they want to pursue then providing them with the information needed to get there. To be an effective facilitator, I try to stay abreast of the professional schools' requirements and KSU resources.
I love to dance.
