I am the Grant Manager for the Rural Information Technology Alliance at Pine Technical and Community College. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economic and Business Administration and am licensed in Elementary Education at the Masters level from the University of Wisconsin, River Falls.
Prior to joining RITA I was employed by St. Croix River Education District, where I coordinated several programs. I managed the Adult Basic Education Program, Project SEEK (a 1st – 7th grade program for gifted students), and was also the Electronic Communications Coordinator which involved website development as well as computer support and training.
During my tenure as Adult Basic Education Manager, the program grew by over 500%. I hope to have a positive impact in growing the RITA project as well. My goal for RITA is to increase the number of students that graduate in an IT field from PTCC through expansion of program options and support.
When I am not working with RITA, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In addition, I like to bicycle, waterski, read, cook and enjoy listening to music. I love working with students so please stop in and say hello.
