I graduated from Portland State University in 1996 with a BA in Music: Vocal Performance as well as Business: Marketing & Management. Upon graduation from PSU, I began working as an Admissions Counselor for the University where I got the pleasure of traveling to Alaska and Hawaii representing the school and recruiting future students. In addition to planning the various Open House events for the university, I also had the distinct privilege of coordinating the 1998 PSU Commencement Ceremony with guest speaker President Bill Clinton. It was a once in a lifetime experience to plan an event in coordination with the White House staff and Secret Service! In the Fall of 1998 I took a position of Director of Admissions at a St. Mary's Academy, where I worked for 5 years. I left St. Mary's in 2003 to stay home and focus on raising our young and growing family. Seton Catholic was in the beginning stages of discussion during that time, and my prayer was when I was ready to reenter the workforce, Seton would need me. That prayer was answered in July 2014 when I began my work at Seton Catholic as the Director of Admissions.
While I love working in Admissions, being a wife and mother is my primary vocation. I have been married to my husband, Dan, since 1997, and we have four wonderful children. Catholic school has been a priority for us for our children. All 4 of our children have attended or are currently attending St. Joseph School and Seton Catholic. Our eldest graduated from Seton in 2018 and is now enrolled in college.
I enjoy singing with the music ministry at St. Joseph Church, especially being able to minister as a cantor at funerals. I spend a great deal of time on the golf course, the ball field and the bleachers enjoying watching my children play sports. In my "free time" I enjoy gardening, hiking, reading, crocheting and scrapbooking.
