About Me

DSC_9467 (1024x680)I am a Lawrence, Kansas native currently working as a Project Coordinator at a research center within a major state university.  My husband and I live in East Lawrence and are very active with our neighborhood association.

I have been running meetings, volunteering with numerous charity organizations, planning large events, and public speaking since I was 11 years old. I love doing work that benefits the community around me and have a very deep love of Lawrence.

I am a reformed Kansas City commuter.  I worked for two different companies in the fields of financial services and airport consulting in Kansas City prior to coming to The University of Kansas.

I have been actively involved in and held leadership positions in community and civic organizations. I am a former Event Co-Chair for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Douglas County and a Board Member for Just Food, the local Douglas County, Kansas food bank, and for the Social Media Club of Lawrence.

I hold dual Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration and eMarketing from Franklin University and am currently enrolled in a Digital Content Strategy Master’s program at the University of Kansas, William Allen White School of Journalism.
