    Assistant Director of Admission

    Works with prospective students Iowa (Des Moines, East, North, West), Kansas, Missouri (Kansas City), Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

Hometown: Royal, Iowa

About me: I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a BA in communication and a minor in psychology. Prior to working for Cornell, I was an Executive Team Leader at Target for a little over two years (and have consequently formed a slight obsession for the store). I've been married to my husband, John, since July 21, 2018, and we adopted a beautiful 10-year-old cat named Princess, who totally lives up to the name.

One place I recommend students visit on campus: Thomas Commons is pretty much a one-stop-shop for all a student could ever need! From food at the Hilltop Cafe and Zamora's, the Roe Howard Fitness Center, Career and Civic Engagement Center, the Student Life office, and the O.C., this facility is the ultimate resource to help with student success and engagement at Cornell College.

What I can do for you: I am here as a guide and a resource for you during your college search. While it can be fun to explore the different opportunities that a college provides, it can also be a bit overwhelming at times. It is my hope that I can be a source of clarity for you, available to answer any and all questions you may have about Cornell or the admissions process as a whole.
