Title: Assistant Director and Event Specialist
Hometown: Liberty Township, OH
High School: Lakota
College Major(s): Marketing
After graduating from Miami University with a degree in Business (major in marketing) and earning an MBA from Xavier University, I embarked on a 20 year career in marketing research – analyzing research data for consumer product companies and the pharmaceutical industry in Cincinnati, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana. I then spent several years working for a government agency as an Event Specialist. Now, I have returned to my alma mater and love being behind all the exciting events the Office of Admission creates for prospective students and high school counselors. When not at the office, I spend time with my husband (also a Miami alum) and two boys (one of whom is also a Miami alum) at our houseboat on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky, which I consider my second home. Water sports, hiking, gardening and all kinds of family outdoor activities occupy most of my free time.
Favorite Miami Moment
Miami Hockey! When I was a student here, Miami Hockey was a club sport and the team played at the original Goggin Ice Arena. Seeing the hockey team progress so far and become a NCAA standout in a world class ice arena is a can’t miss for students here (even if, like me, you never attended a hockey game before enrolling here).
