I have been at Nebraska Wesleyan for 27 years. Before coming to NWU I worked at a nursing home for 12 years, then for 2 years at Ernie's in Ceresco. My husbands name is Tom, we have a son Chris, who lives in Denver. We enjoy our German Shorthairs, Maggie and Trav, riding a Harley on vacations and we use to rescue orphaned baby squirrels. I enjoy taking pictures, writting poems, decorating my house, spending time with family and friends.
I have a certificate in Forensic Science that I received from NWU in 2003. I have taken English I and two poetry classes. I have attended trainings on Clery, RCRA, EPA, recycling, mold awareness, asbestos, MSDS, bloodborne pathogens, critical incident & planning, fire & water damage, ergonomics and safety. I have also attended workshops on being a woman in a superviser role and many trainings on proper cleaning.
I try to help out with charities and fundraisers within our Wesleyan community as much as possable. I also support the Japanese nursing program in the summer. For the past four years I have lead a team for the Relay for Life here on campus.
I received the CORE award at NWU. I was a volunteer EMT/ firefighter for 20 years in Ceresco where I had held the postions of Secretary, Training Officer and Rescue Chief.
