Purpose – Mission of work
Our purpose is to honor the core values of freedom, education, charity and justice and ensure all Clarke students have the resources, tools and support to be successful.
I have spent my career in the non-profit sector focused on higher education and healthcare philanthropy.
My family and I enjoy traveling and exploring new places.
In addition to my professional duties and volunteer committee work at Clarke, I am active in the community currently serving as president for the regional chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. I am also a fundraising volunteer for St. Francis Xavier Basilica and a committee member for the annual gala benefitting St. Francis Xavier Elementary School in Dyersville, Iowa.
