I received my B.B.A. in business administration from Iowa State University and my M.A. in English from University of Central Missouri. As a military spouse, I lived across the U.S., Germany, and Japan, and encourage others to explore and experience the amazing world around them. I thoroughly enjoy helping students discover and plan for their futures: to see them grow into confident, always-learning Wolves!
