Hello! I have been serving students in higher education for over 30 years, including my role as Director of Graduate Admissions at Purdue University. Prior to this, I served 11 years directing financial aid, 3 years teaching and advising, 6 years leading enterprise technology projects, and 12 years as Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs at Purdue. I also have several years of experience consulting for the U.S. Department of Education and many firms such as Ellucian, E-Systems, Oracle, PeopleSoft, FastWeb, and Campus Labs. I am a data visualization junkie who also enjoys coaching and mentoring.
My interactions with students over the years and the development of meaningful relationships with students, faculty, and staff are some of the greatest experiences of my career. My inspiration is to bring lessons learned from career and life experiences to conversations with young people, so that they may be inspired to achieve goals and impact the lives of others.
