I am honored to be part of the Institutional Advancement team at St. Thomas. We work hard to advance the mission of the university and to provide life-changing, transformational experiences for our students. This important work motivates all of us to actively engage our alumni and friends who are so critical to our work.

When I received the opportunity to come work at St. Thomas, it was a wonderful chance for me to bring together my personal values and lifelong affinity for education with my professional experiences in marketing and fundraising. In my role, I oversee the annual giving, alumni relations, donor relations and advancement communications functions at St. Thomas. I work with an amazing group of individuals dedicated to these strategic areas.

I earned a degree in music from St. Olaf College and an M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota, and I have been lucky enough to have a second career as a singer for over 20 years. I met my wife singing in one of these groups! We have continued to make the arts an essential part of our lives and for our beautiful little girl who is the center of all that we do together.

When I’m not with my family or singing, I can be seen running the streets of St. Paul training for my next marathon.
