I am new to my position as an Accountant for the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Institute for Quantitative Health Science & Engineering and I am very excited to be part of this team! Although new to the department, I have worked for MSU since 2006 starting out as a secretary in the housing department and advancing into several business/department manager positions. Mostly recently, from December 2017 until starting at IQ & BME in April 2021, I served as the Business Manager for two departments in the College of Veterinary Medicine. Taking with me added knowledge, experience and many great friendships, I am happy to be of service in my new accountant role. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Central Michigan University and set out to change the workplace as a Certified Workplace Wellness Manager early in my career. After some learning experiences, acceptance, personal growth, and starting a family, my professional interests and path changed directions eventually leading me here!
On a more personal introduction; I am married to my best friend and we have three wonderful children. We spend our free time at our family cottage up north or at our hunting camp in mid-Michigan. I love spending time with my family, going boating and fishing and hunting for pretty rocks!
