Long ago (1979) and far away (not really, just central Kansas) I decided to become a Jayhawk. I must have really felt comfortable in the Jayhawk nest because I have never left it. I don't just rest in the nest. I use my strengths (empathy-strategic-input-responsibility-individualization) to happily assist my co-workers and help the students at KU.
I've worked on campus in HSES, Financial Aid, and the Undergraduate Advising Center (UAC) where I am the office manager. I have seen much change on campus from the seasonal beauty of the landscape to the ever evolving campus offices and departments across the university. I think the saying, "The more things change, the more they stay the same," rings true. The University changes so that it provides the best "nest" for incoming students so that they can grow, learn, and "fly away" to be wonderful contributors to society.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking, writing and celebrating family life with my spouse and four children.
