I was born and raised in Marysville, Kansas; graduated from Marysville High School. After high school I moved to Topeka for several years before returning to the Marysville area to raise a family. I currently reside south of Blue Rapids in the country. I have a daughter age 24 and two sons ages 20 and 14.
K-State pride runs through my veins and the opportunity to work at Kansas State University was like a dream come true. I started working for Kansas State University in 2010 in the Office of Student Financial Assistance as the Receptions Supervisor. I really enjoy my position because I get to interact with prospective and current students, as well as their parents. I enjoy providing excellent service to students, faculty and staff. Prior to working at Kansas State University I worked the past 4 years for Hulsing Hotels Group as the Regional Controller for the Midwest and the Controller for the Clarion Hotel overseeing the accounting aspects of the hotel. I spent 15 years working for Pepsi Cola in Marysville and Manhattan in their offices as a bookkeeper and secretary.
When I am not busy being the cook, maid and chauffer. I enjoy watching my youngest son playing sports. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy being outside, especially spending time grilling and by the pool.
I am excited and honored to be a member of the Kansas State University Classified Senate. I hope my service and insight is helpful and beneficial to all of the classified staff. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as a Classified Senator I believe this will be an educational and interesting experience.
