A Midwestern transplant to the West – I came to Reno for a temporary internship and never left! Originally, I thought life would make me a band teacher, but I ended up with two degrees in Public Administration, a PhD (hopefully soon!) and a passion for making public organizations successful. For the College of Business, I get to come into the office every day and work to bring a world class education to life for our students. I get to figure out how to make the physical space work for what we need, hire the right people and provide the resources necessary to push the next generation to graduation and beyond. My love of music and theater didn’t wain and I’m so lucky to live in a community and work for an organization that values art, culture, education and diversity.
