University Hall 160, 3640 Colonel Glenn Hwy, Dayton, OH 45435-0001

I have worked for Wright State University since 2004, starting in the Department of OB/GYN. in 2015, I moved to the College of Nursing and Health as their business manager. I love working in higher education - all but 3 years of my career have been in an higher education institution. The majority of my higher education experience has been on the medical side - working with both physicians and nurses. I love knowing that I'm working in the background to help our students reach their goals of woring in the medical field.

In January 2020, I transitioned into the role of Manager of Business Operations with the newly formed College of Health, Education, and Human Services. This has been a great challenge as I learn more about all the specialty areas and yet gives me a chance to know more people at Wright State. I love my job and the people I work with; I'm looking forward to a great future for the CHEH.

Currently, I'm working a flexible schedule in that I work from home 3 days per week and in the office 2 days per week. Feel free to email me if you need anything as that's the easiest and most effiicent way to reach me. My work line is forwarded to my home phone, so I can keep up with phone calls, too, while working off campus.
