Prior to moving back to my hometown of Springfield, MO, I lived in Los Angeles and was the head of marketing for an executive search firm. I have also held roles in fundraising, governmental relations, alumni relations and recruiting. I’m honored to have been recognized by Biz 417 as “10 for the next 10 in 2017” and the Springfield Business Journal’s “12 People You Should Know in 2018.” I graduated from the University of Missouri, where I served as student body president.

“Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember – time waits for no one.
