I am proud to join the Orono Public Schools Administrative Team! I bring more than 30 years’ experience in non-profit communications, marketing and public relations, including several years in K-12 public education.
I bring a deep love for public education, along with a record of success in collaborating with stakeholders, raising awareness of academic opportunities for students, storytelling, and media relations.
Orono Public Schools has an incredible reputation for delivering academic excellence, personal connections, and support for the whole student through its character-education program. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to support this work, keep the community informed and share the Orono Schools’s story. I look forward to collaborating with Orono’s team of compassionate administrators, teachers and staff as we strive every day to create outstanding learning experiences for our students in partnership with families and the broader community.
I hold a bachelor of science degree in business, an English minor and Certificate in Technical Communication. In 2015, I earned the Universal Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) and am proud to serve as a board member and treasurer for the Minnesota School Public Relations Association (MinnSPRA).
I have been married to my husband, Michael, since 1986 and have two grown daughters, Kathryn and Meredith, and son-in-law, Aaron. We love traveling, playing board games together, and spending time with our dog, Millie, and insane feline, Freddie.
