Dean of Student Life

I am a native Oregonian and I graduated from Central Catholic in 1988. My father was a 1956 graduate of CC and I am a strong supporter of Catholic education. My favorite part about being on the Central Catholic staff is the sense of community that permeates everything we do. From sports to academics and fundraisers to campus ministry you cannot escape the influence of past and future generations of Rams…and I love that!

I graduated from the University of Oregon in 1992 with a degree in Marketing and worked in the private sector for several years. During that time I was a member of the Central Catholic Alumni Board. This working relationship helped lead me back to Central Catholic in 2001 as the special events coordinator in the Development Office.

In 2003, I was promoted to Director of Student Activities. I was the Director of Student Activities until 2019 when I transitioned into a new role as the Dean of Student Life. What I love most about my job is the energy and enthusiasm of our student body. My goal for our students has always been to provide an environment that encourages students to find something they are passionate about within our community. I love having the opportunity to work with the next generation of students and I am proud to be a Ram!
