About Me

As part of Carleton's Alumni Relations team, I work on our annual Reunion event specifically with the 20th, 30th, and 35th Reunion program committees and serve as the staff liaison for the Out After Carleton (OAC) group.  I also work with the Carleton Clubs throughout the country including Twin Cities, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Colorado (among others), and oversee the domestic Alumni Adventures program.

Education & Professional History

Before joining the Alumni Relations staff, I worked at Carleton's Science Education Resource Center (SERC) and the executive office of the National Association of Geoscience Teacher's (NAGT). At SERC and NAGT, I worked with faculty to manage projects involved with undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and worked directly with numerous advisory boards and committees, cross-disciplinary working groups, and large and small grant project principle investigators. In addition, I was responsible for planning, development and implementation of marketing strategies, communications and outreach, and public relation activities for both SERC and NAGT. I came to SERC from Carleton's Educational Studies Department where I was responsible for administration of all department activities including student teaching placement, field experiences, and teacher certification. 

My prior experience includes work in publishing, marketing and publicity, nonprofit administration, and environmental advocacy. I have served as a representative on the Staff at Carleton committee, was fortunate to be a part of one of the working groups for the most recent President's Strategic Planning process, and was an editor of the Carleton Weekly newsletter for faculty and staff. Most recent volunteer activities have included serving as a preliminary and finalist judge for the Minnesota Book Awards and serving on the fundraising committee of the Northfield Arts Guild.  I came to Carleton in 2006 shortly after moving to Northfield with my husband and two sons.
