She began her admissions career in 1991 as an admissions counselor and was soon promoted to assistant director, associate director, and then in 2000, to Director of Graduate and Undergraduate Admissions, where she was responsible for creating the first graduate admissions office at the University. In 2003 she was promoted to Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management and took over direct supervision of undergraduate admissions, graduate admissions, financial aid, youth ministry relations, and retention.

She also chaired the Southern California Christian Colleges Enrollment Directors group for six years and served on the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Personnel (NACCAP) board for three years.

As a former Ruffalo Noel Levitz client, she believes strongly in the tools and resources the company provides enrollment management professionals in meeting and exceeding their enrollment goals. She is excited about her role at Ruffalo Noel Levitz, which gives her the opportunity to assist and work with many institutions as they strive to reach their goals.
