She most recently served as the Senior Coordinator for the Center for New Directions at the College of Eastern Idaho where she works with students by providing career exploration, retention services, and recruitment for non-traditional programs in addition to providing services to single parents and displaced homemakers.

She says the best day of the year is commencement, while it also tugs at the heart strings a bit, watching CEI students succeed is a privilege.
