I grew up in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, where I was involved in 4-H and raised Quarter Horses and Oxford sheep. I came to Penn State to earn my bachelor of science in agricultural education. After a brief stint as a vocational agriculture instructor, I worked as an extension agent, my first position at Penn State. I completed a masters of science in agricultural education in 1993 and a doctoral degree in instructional systems in 2006. I started working in DUS as an adviser and Coordinator of FTCAP Operations in 1991 and in February of 2008 began a new role as the DUS Programs Coordinator for the College of Agricultural Sciences. My time is consumed with work and volunteer work in my church and for the National Academic Advising Association. My husband, Darrell, and my children, Cody and Chelsey, consume my time and my heart!
