Hobbies/Fun Facts: I enjoy spending time with my daughter. I also like golfing, gardening, crafting, canoeing down the K-zoo river, and reading.
What makes Albion College special to you? I met my husband here. You can usually find my family cheering on our teams or attending the newest play on campus.
Favorite Albion Moments: Watching Michael Thomas hit a leaning three-pointer at the buzzer to beat John Carroll 80-79 and move on to the sectional finals in March 2005. I also enjoy a tradition I started called Soup Sundays. On Sundays we have our Albion faculty and staff friends over for dinner and games.
Best College Search Tip: Start early! There is nothing worse than having to rush into a decision because you've waited until the last semester of your senior year to start looking at colleges. Give yourself plenty of time to visit colleges and get your questions answered so you can make an informed, not rushed, decision. Remember that the job of an admission counselor is to help students through the college search process. We're here to help, so take advantage of that! Lastly, visit, visit, visit!
