About Me:
I have been with the College of Engineering since 1998 and have worked with graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, administration, and staff in a variety of capacities. My current role allows me to work closely with the faculty and administration of the College of Engineering as well as our partners at UNL and other educational institutions across Nebraska.  My work covers a wide variety of policies, procedures, collaborations, and systems.  My focus is to streamline the student experience between institutions for individuals who will be our next generation of Nebraska Engineering professionals.  When I am away from work, I am typically in my pottery studio making historically inspired functional vessels, enjoying time at Ravensborg Longfort (the largest Viking reenactment site in North America) with my husband, or participating in social justice events and choir with the Unitarian Church of Lincoln of which I am a member of the Board of Trustees.
