I am a proud Collegiate "lifer" who started WCS in Kindergarten in 1971. After graduating in 1984, I graduated from Baylor University with a BA in English Literature and then went to the University of Kansas School of Law where I graduated in 1991. I am currently a member of the Kansas Bar.
From 1991-93, I worked for the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department in Houston, TX where I worked in the juvenile law area. From 1993-97 I worked as an attorney at the American Society of Travel Agents in Alexandria, VA (outside of Washington, D.C.) where I traveled the world with my husband Tom, who was working at the National Institutes of Health as an Infectious Diseases Fellow.
After returning to our hometown in 1997, I joined the WCS Alumni Board, serving as the President in 1999-2000 and for the next 14 years, served the Wichita community as a volunteer leader for WCS, the Junior League of Wichita, the Sedgwick County Medical Alliance, Arts Partners, Kidzcope, and the Wichita Grand Opera.
After serving nine years on the WCS Board of Trustees, three years as the Development Chair and the last three years as Chair of the Board, we relocated with our family to New Orleans for two years. We returned to Wichita in 2012 when I took the job as Director of Development and am now the Director of Advancement. I oversee the areas of development (fundraising), marketing, communication, alumni relations, digital media and admission. Tom is a physician with Infectious Disease Consultants and we have two awesome kids, Gracie, Class of 2017 and Ian, Class of 2020. It is my privilege and honor to work for the school that has been a fundamental part of my life since 1971.
