    Director of Administration & Communication
    Phone: 206-220-8554

    What is your role?

    I came to the CCE staff as Manager of Budget and Operations in 2011. In this role, I oversee all of the university sponsored, donor gift and federally and privately funded grant accounts – a whopping 30 budgets! I also coordinate CCE/SUYI strategic communication plans as well as managing the SUYI Liaison Committee, a group of university-wide representatives working to enhance campus activities supporting the Youth Initiative.

    What is your favorite part about working at the CCE?

    Working in the Center allows me to offer my unique set of skills to an effort in which I deeply believe. The SU students working in the Center are passionate and inspirational in their desire to make the world a better place for all. It’s infectious!

    What is your professional and educational background?

    I have spent over 25 years working as a College Administrator in various roles. I even used to be the Campion Resident Hall director back in the late 80’s! I hold a B.A. in Psychology/Sociology from St. Mary’s of Notre Dame and I am an alum of SU’s Master’s Program in Pastoral Studies.

    What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

    On most days you can find me zipping around town on my Vespa and if you really want to see my eyes light up ask me about my trip to Peru in Fall 2013!
