Tell us a little bit about yourself: I grew up in Michigan and graduated from Davenport University. I started working in the Sports Information office at Davenport as an undergrad and then on into grad school. After an internship at the University Alabama at Birmingham, I became the Assistant Athletic Director and Sports Information Director at Ave Maria University in September 2013. I have since added golf coach to my resume and have coached our men's and women's golf teams the past three season. In my free time, I like photography, sketching, and traveling. I have made it to seven countries and counting. I am never far from a coffee pot and am engaged to be married next June.

Favorite Memory as an SID: In Ave Maria's first football game on campus, we scored two touchdowns in the final 38 seconds to defeat NCAA DII Florida Tech 45-41. We scored with 38 seconds left, recovered the onside kick and scored as time expired to win the game.
