Associate Director of Operations
Job Responsibilities: My role in our office is to manage everything “behind the scenes” that a student doesn’t see when they come to campus. This includes managing our student database, application information, supplemental materials, helping with our communications, etc. It is my responsibility to help students take steps toward Coe in the smoothest way possible.
What I love about my job: The college environment is what makes my job exciting. My responsibilities are very logical and procedural, but I still have the enjoyment of working with students on a daily basis.
My hobbies: Being active (tennis, squash, mountain biking, softball, jogging, skiing, etc.), traveling (12 countries and counting), listing to new music, watching movies, reading and spending time with my new son, Oliver, and dog, Mollie!
Favorite Coe Tradition: I really enjoy New Student Orientation. It gives everyone a chance to see the entire incoming class for a few days and get accustomed to college life before it actually starts.
Cedar Rapids Favorites:
Eat: Tomaso's Pizzeria, Brewed Awakenings, Salsa Del Rio, Zeppelin’s and Red’s House (North Liberty)
Museums: Art Museum, Czech Museum, Brucemore
Time killer: Lately, I’ve been tinkering on refurbishing an old bicycle, I try to throw some pottery as much as I can and I spend much of my free time with my family/friends.
