What I like most about being a Stratus MBA Admissions Counselor:

I love guiding others to discover what they are capable of accomplishing and then watching them succeed.

3 Random Facts:

  • I hate heights but occasionally jumped out of planes in the Army.
  • I once convinced my athletic husband to ski a 100-mile race through remote Alaska with me to culminate his first year of skiing. Only once.
  • Growing up, my family’s claim to fame was earning a plaque by visiting all (then) 64 Minnesota State Parks.
