BA (English) Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD
MS (College Student Personnel Administration) South Dakota State University


While at Augustana College, I was an RA for two years, which ultimately led me to continue my career in higher education.  I started grad school at SDSU in 1999.  The first year, I held a grad assistantship in the SDSU Department of Residential Life.  My second year, I received a Graduate Hall Director position at Augustana.  After graduation, I worked for two years at  Central Connecticut State University as a Residence Hall Director and as an instructor for a Psychology 101 course. Next, I worked for four years as Assistant Director of Residential Life and Housing Services at Sacred Heart University.  From Connecticut I moved to Florida where I worked for five years at the State College of Florida in Mathematics, Enrollment Services, Outreach and Dual Enrollment, and finally as a Student Development Advisor.
