Director of Campus

"I came to the University of St. Thomas in 1997 to work in Campus Ministry.  Since then I have come to love this place more and more.  The campus is beautiful.  The academic and student affairs programs are excellent.  But the most important factor to me is the people.  There is a history here that has been forged by scores of competent, dedicated, giving people.  Even as the University has grown, there is still a tangible sense of community here.  This is the nourishing ground from which quality graduates grow."
