Hello!  I am the senior director of the Educational Opportunity Grant Programs at Lewis-Clark State College.  I direct two TRIO programs and oversee the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP).  Our TRIO Talent Search program serves students in the communities of Kamiah, Kooskia, and Orofino while the TRIO Student Support Services program helps college students through graduation.  I have been with LCSC since November 1999.  Before coming to TRIO, I worked as an instructor at the Adult Learning Center and a student services coordinator in eLearning Services.  I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Secondary Education and Masters of Education in Adult Education, both from the University of Idaho.  I received my Ph.D. in May 2018. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Brian, and my two children, Madison and Benjamin as well as two cats and three dogs.
