A Little Bit About Me:

My Role at Bethel

Associate Dean for Student Care

Why You'd Contact Me

I connect with students who may be experiencing a variety of concerns that can happen during the college years. These could be related to a medical condition, mental health, academics, loss of a loved one, or difficult life circumstances you or a friend might experience. I provide oversight to student care and conduct teams at Bethel, and I connect students to resources both within the Bethel community and in surrounding communities off-campus.

Reasons I Love My Job

I love walking with students through both the tough and wonderful moments that can be part of your college experience. Your college years are such a time of figuring out who you are and who you want to become, and it is my privilege to be a part of that process!  I love the collaborative nature of student care at Bethel and am thankful for the faculty and staff that are here to support you and help you be successful at Bethel and beyond!

In My Free Time

I love spending time with my husband and three kids! I enjoy being outside and exploring, decorating, gardening, baking, traveling, being with extended family, and connecting with friends over a cup of coffee.

Best Bethel Tradition

There are great traditions here at Bethel! A couple of my favorites are Welcome Week and Homecoming, as the energy is amazing and there are different opportunities for students to be involved and have FUN!
