I am a Minnesota transplant from Wisconsin, joining the U in 2018. I have come to love the Twin Cities more than I could have imagined, and now "Home is on both sides of the river"! I have a passion for moving things from good to great and thriving in the gray unknown, collaborating toward a vision of excellence to benefit those we serve.
