Before LCSC, I worked extensively in the public sector at the Federal (National Park Service), State (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources), and Local (City of Moscow, ID) levels. I also worked in the nonprofit sector for various organizations throughout the Pacific and Inland Northwest. In additional to teaching for the Business Division, I serve as a program advisor for LCSC’s Nursing and Health Sciences Division.

I am passionate about community engagement and serve as Chair of the Coeur d’Alene Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee, as well as Grants Committeewoman for Emerge, a community arts nonprofit. I enjoy backpacking, hiking, climbing, reading, Green Bay Packers football, Milwaukee Brewers baseball, bluegrass music, and being surrounded by dogs.
