I like going on family bike rides, attending my son’s soccer games (year round), working in my yard, going to the movies and traveling. To relax I enjoy curling up with a good book.

What brought me to OSF were the employees that I met. All of them had positive things to say and were proud to work for OSF.   The things I enjoy most about my job are meeting with prospective students and their families, working with current students, being extremely busy every day and working with a great team in Admissions.

I am most proud of having a challenging job that I love and for being here almost 20 years. Last year, I was invited to attend a Breakfast of Champions with Keith Steffen, our CEO.  Also, I received an award for The Standard of Integrity.
