Anderson Athletic and Recreation Center, 341

I joined the University Advancement team in 2022, because it is a great opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of our student-athletes. Athletics has always been a passion of mine and it is a very exciting time to be involved in Tommie Athletics as we start year 2 of being Division 1. I look forward to engaging former student-athletes, parents, alumni, and donors to learn more about their passions and experiences at UST and inspire them to give back to Tommie Athletics.

I grew up in Faribault, MN and bring a strong athletics background, having earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in sports management at the University of Minnesota. My husband Michael and I enjoy staying active outdoors – hiking, biking, golfing, playing pickleball, and taking our 8-month-old puppy Nala for walks around our neighborhood. We are also expecting a baby boy in March 2023.
