Where are you from?

I am of German and Nordic heritage and was born and raised near Washington, DC in the suburbs of northern Virginia.

What brought you to the University of Miami?

I have twenty years of experience in higher education — specifically in enrollment management, admissions and student services. In 2011, I moved to Miami to work at one of our nation’s top-ranking research universities. Not only is it great to live and work in such a beautiful place, UMiami offers students a strong learning environment rooted in research. Its diversity and location are key strengths for a globally-oriented education. 

Languages Spoken
