Born and raised in the Forsyth, IL area, I am a proud mother of three daughters, ages 29, 27, and 14.

Weekend trips to visit with family in Roanoke, IL gave me the desire to relocate to the Peoria area to be near family, the river, trees, and beautiful terrain. In June 2011, my youngest daughter and I moved here after accepting the position offered by Midstate College. I was thrilled at this opportunity as I sensed a genuine family environment at Midstate College in my interviews.

I receive much satisfaction from working in higher education, as this engages me in improving this country’s future. In the past, I obtained sales licenses in real estate and insurance, but it was being exposed to the energy and brilliance of college-aged, young adults that solidified my future in higher education.

In my free time, I enjoy church activities, spending time with my daughters/friends/family, walking, biking, and being out to enjoy life and to see new things! I also like to travel and see this country’s beauty, cultures, and opportunities.

Always remember: “the best vitamin for friendship is B-1!”
