Hello! We all have a story to tell, our journey through life that has some expected and unexpected twists and turns. The beginning of my path that led to IUSB encompassed three campuses and universities across the state of Indiana. I began my freshman year at Ball State University, in the School of Architecture, took some summer classes at IUSB, developed new life goals, and thusly, transferred and finished my degree at Purdue University, West Lafayette.
Shortly after college, I started a family and became a mother of four daughters (not all at once, :) although I did have twins.) After some time at home enjoying motherhood, I began working for a local K-12 school corporation in various administrative support roles. During the past 13 years, I discovered a passion for making a positive impact on others while encouraging their educational and life goals. As the new Credential Analyst, I look forward to continuing to support students in accomplishing their current endeavors.
It's a pleasure to be a part of the IUSB Admissions department and to meet and work with new colleagues and individuals from our local community, various campuses and from around the world. Whether your journey is just beginning, following some twist and turns, or pursuing a new interest, furthering our education gives us an opportunity to broaden our perspectives, experiences and options. At this juncture of my journey, I am eager to explore new opportunities at IUSB and all it has to offer for myself as well.
On a personal note: I am a recent empty nester (and grandma I might add), and look forward to more personal free time. So if you know of a great section of river to canoe/kayak, novel, binge-worthy show, movie, trail to hike, euchre game or other random activity worth mentioning, please stop by, say hello and make a suggestion!
