Bio:

My financial aid career began, as many do, as a student employee in the office of Metro State some 20 years ago.

I came to MSU Denver as a first generation college student and could not have made a better decision. MSU Denver was a perfect fit for me and to this day, still is.

I graduated from Metro with a BS in CJC in 1992 – and NO dinosaurs were not roaming the earth then.

I love MSU Denver and the students who attend here.

During my time as a financial aid professional, I have seen numerous changes both at the federal, state and institutional level. All of which have proved to be challenging and exciting at the same time. I know my role is to make the financial process accessible for all students. To help them navigate successfully through what can (in most instances) be perceived as a complicated myriad of rules and goobldygoop!!

I suppose with that said, my true gratification within this profession comes from helping students from all walks of life work to achieve their educational goals. Financial aid is a means to that end. After some twenty years as a financial aid professional, I continue to enjoy my work. That, in itself, is truly a wonderful thing!!
