817-257-2673 3301 Bellaire Drive North
Fort Worth, Texas 76109
TCU Box 297013
Fort Worth, TX 76129

Hometown: Maple Hill, IA (population 42)

Alma Mater: Minnesota State University – Mankato (Bachelors) and TCU (Masters)

Year I Joined the Office of Admission: 2005

Areas I Recruit: The states of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

I Think TCU Is a Great University Because: Students get the best of all worlds – the options and excitement of a big university, the charm and faculty connection of a small school, and the day-to-day balance that only a medium sized college can offer.

Favorite Activities I Was Involved in During My College Years: I was involved in many activities during my college experience: campus tour guide; jazz band (baritone saxophone) show choir; and residence advisor (R.A.).

Hobbies and Interests: My super-power is making sugar cookies. I have a massive cookie cutter collection and enjoy looking for new shapes in thrift stores and antique shops. When I’m not making cookies (or eating them), I enjoy cheering for the Horned Frogs (whether it be for academics, fine arts, or athletics). Go Frogs!

If You Visited My Office You’d See: Pictures of my sons and me at a TCU football game flashing the “Frog sign.” Go Frogs!

My Advice to You: Take time to get to know your professors. Their wisdom and guidance is golden when it comes to internships and career opportunities. Also, make sure you stay in touch with your professors over the years. They love it when you send career and personal updates.
