I grew up on a farm an hour north of Iowa City, and received my BA from Coe College in Cedar Rapids in 1999. After living in Lincoln, NE, and Savannah, GA, I returned home to Iowa and got married in 2002. I worked as a Graphic Designer for the University of Iowa College of Dentistry for ten years before joining the University of Iowa History Department as an Undergraduate Program Coordinator in January 2019. I provide administrative support to faculty and undergraduate students, and assist with design needs. My husband and I currently reside in Iowa City with our two young boys, one shih tzu, and two cats.
