About

I joined the Office of the President as Executive Assistant in December 2021. In this role, I provide day-to-day operational support to President Laurie Carter. I'm a super organized person, and I love using my skills to ensure the President's Office runs smoothly and efficiently. 

Before this role, I spent eight years at the Tennessee Department of Education, most recently in the role of Chief of Staff for the Office of Districts and Schools. I also worked in program manager roles in curriculum and instruction, career and technical education, and federal programs. 

On a personal note, I lived in Nashville for 19 years before moving to Wisconsin. I now live in Oshkosh with my husband, Neil, and our two doodles, Bucky and Scout.
