Director of Undergraduate Admissions

What did you do after you graduated from Point Loma?

I graduated from PLNU with a degree in Management and Organizational Communication.  My first career job was in our Admissions Office! After a few years, I headed off to seminary to pursue a Master’s in Theology.  The combination of these two degrees has opened amazing doors for me and my sweet family!  I have been a youth pastor, volunteer pediatric hospital chaplain, YoungLife Committee Chair, marketing director and an adjunct professor.  I 100% believe my degree at Loma helped pave the way for all of these experiences.

What was your favorite aspect of Point Loma and why?

Along with the stunning location; the friendships I made!  My small group of six girlfriends from PLNU are still some of my greatest friends to this day.  We are scattered throughout the country and each one is doing amazing things: from an associate dean at a large state school, educational editor for a major publisher, to the head nurse for a school district - they would all say PLNU was a huge catalyst for their personal and professional success.

What do you do in your free time?

I watch my kids sporting events! Cross country, track, waterpolo and baseball.
