About Me: I was born and raised on a farm in rural Minnesota. I am an avid college football fan! I played college volleyball (despite only being 5'4") I love animals & have four dogs: Suri (Min-pin), Oberon (Standard Poodle), Gypsy (Doberman), & Sundance (Yorkie). I also have four human children - two students (son @ Hamilton College in NY & daughter at Coastal Carolina), one high schooler, & one middle schooler. I love spending time with my family playing games, hiking, and traveling. 

Favorite Quote: "Everything happens for a reason."

Advice to Students: When in doubt, reach out! Whether you are questioning academic choices, homework, or social situations, there are resources at your disposal! If I can't directly help, I can help find someone who does! Our goal at the UAC is to guide you down the path to success - whatever that looks like for YOU!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
