Assistant Director

General Overview:

I believe that every student should have a champion – whether that be a professor, an academic/org advisor, a boss, or residence hall director.  A champion encourages the student to exceed their potential and challenges them to learn, grow and connect the dots in ways they may not have.


I serve as the Assistant Director at Academic Retention Services.  I have dedicated my career to developing students as leaders.   Prior to joining the ARS team, I was the Coordinator of Student Government Services at the University of Missouri where I mentored student leaders in the Missouri Students Association, STRIPES, Tiger Pantry, Trumans Closet, Associated Students of the University of Missouri, KCOU and MUTV.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Missouri Western State University and a Masters’ Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Dakota.
