Joining the staff of the Student Accessibility Center in 1999 was a dream come true
for me! I have a long background in disability services, and it was a natural progression
for me to come to SAC after working on campus for three years as an Equal Opportunity
Specialist with the Diversity Office.  I enjoy working with the students, both those with
visual impairments or blindness and those who need my office’s services for alternative texts.

My position as Program Manager provides me with a wealth of work, be it working directly
with blind or visually impaired students; providing accommodation knowledge to faculty and
instructors; being a source of knowledge for those on and off campus who need disability
information; coordinating the alternative text reading schedule and volunteers; recruiting those
wonderful volunteers (hint hint); or speaking with campus administrators about accessibility for
the visually impaired.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer reader for the alternative text program, just call
or email, I’ll be happy to give you an orientation!

I grew up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin with three brothers and three sisters. I went to UW-Oshkosh for my undergrad degree, and during that time, attended Cuahenauac school for language in Mexico. 

I lived with a family there and spent time on weekends doing the tourist thing.  I have also worked at a group home for autistic adults, as well as several other residential and occupational  sites. Upon completion of my MPA degree, I started working in the Diversity/Compliance Office, completing the annual Affirmative Action Plan, Career Tracking, and research for trainings and other documents. In my spare time, I enjoy coaching Special Olympics Soccer, Volleyball, and volunteering for Basketball and I also sing in a band with a former co-worker.
