Director of Development & Alumni Relations

I oversee the activities of the University of Minnesota Crookston Office of Development & Alumni Relations by serving as the chief development officer and liaison from the Crookston campus to the University of Minnesota Foundation. I work with constituents to raise funds for various campus initiatives, assist with special events, and promote the Crookston campus. I also the direct U of M, Crookston and Northwest School of Agriculture alumni relations programs and lead the major gift development programs.


Director of Athletic Fundraising

In my 19 years as trainer in athletics prior to my role in fundraising, it was an honor to be a mentor and role-model to thousands of student athletes. In my current position, I’m responsible for the UMC Teambacker organization, planning and managing events including Fun Nite and summer golf tournaments. I work with a variety of constituents to raise money for both athletic scholarships and athletic initiatives.
