MIC Room 224A
(660) 543-6622

Hello! I am the Workforce Program Manager at the MIC Campus in Lee's Summit. I grew up in Missouri and have lived here most of my life. As a non-traditional, first generation student, I earned two degrees from University of Central Missouri, a BSBA and a MBA while working full-time at a local non-profit and part-time at UCM. In 2016, I retired from my full-time position to work full-time at UCM.  I am also an adjunct professor in the Harmon College of Business and Professional Studies.
I am passionate about life long learning and enjoy working with high school, degree, and non-degree seeking students as they work towards their dream. I can help you explore career options and assist with resumes, cover letters, and interview preparation.  Please feel free to stop by my office (A223), email me at, or call me at 660.543.6622  for an appointment.
