Fun facts

My husband Jeff and I have two sons: an extremely adorable and inquisitive 18-year-old named Samuel and an equally adorable 15-year-old named Matthew. My son Sam was born with a vision impairment and uses Braille and a cane to navigate his world. Viewing the world through his lens has helped me realize we all have challenges in our life and that we are ALL capable of overcoming them. I am the oldest of 5 girls and enjoy running, traveling, cooking, and reading. I have run 16 marathons and hope to do one in every state by the time I am 65.  I also enjoy competing in triathlons and completed my first full Ironman in 2015 (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run). I’ll never win one of these events but love pushing myself to see what I am capable of!

Favorite Movies: A Beautiful Life, A River Runs Through It, Chocolat, Without Limits, Little Miss Sunshine

Secret Aspirations: To climb Mt. Everest and to run the Boston Marathon

What I love about CSB+SJU:

I’m constantly impressed with our student’s willingness to travel and explore new cultures. I learn so much about the world just by talking with them!
