My career at WSU Vancouver began in 1997. As PA, I provide direct assistance to Dr. Suzanne Smith, Interim Director of the College of Education. As the primary point of contact for the unit, I work with both internal and external constituencies. I oversee administrative operations, supervise the office staff, provide support to faculty, and manage the course scheduling process. I am responsible for budget reconciliation and maintenance, expenditure control, and fiscal analysis; coordinate mentor teacher stipend payments; and all payroll and personnel tasks. I also serve as Webmaster for the WSUV College of Education web site.
An alum of WSUV, I completed my BA in Anthropology with a minor in English and earned a Professional Writing Certificate while working full-time. I have taken graduate-level courses as well and consider myself a lifelong learner.
I am a licensed Notary Public for the State of Washington. I offer my professional services free of charge to the entire WSU Vancouver community.
Other campus organizations I am actively engaged in are River Cities Anthropologial Society, the WSUV Community Choir and the Diversity Council.
The Pacific Nothwest has been home to me most of my life. I graduated from Hudson's Bay High School in Vancouver and married my high school sweetheart. We have a son, two daughters, and eight grandchildren. I am an avid traveler and recently returned from a visit to Israel, Jordan and Egypt.
