Greetings! I work in Riggs Hall in the Office of Financial Aid. I came to EU September 28, 2020, and consider it a privilege to serve students here.

Title: Financial Aid Counselor

Office: 202M Riggs Hall

Professional Information: Prior to serving at EU, I spent more than 16 years working at Springfield Public Schools, nine in the Human Resources Division and seven in Communications. After attending Missouri Southern State College (now University) for communications, I spent 10+ years working in broadcast journalism, newswriting and publishing prior to education.

Job Responsibilities: Serving incoming and current students and their families by helping them navigate the complex guidelines and government regulations that go along with financial aid. I help students and families better understand how to pay for college and behind the scenes I am running reports to isolate errors and find resolutions for student and parent information on the FAFSA.

Started Work: September 28, 2020

Favorite Thing About Work: Being able to serve students for God's glory.

Originally From: Carthage, MO

Personal Information: My husband Denny and I have been married 24+ years and we have three children. I have been a resident of Springfield for the past 16+ years. I am a musician and private flute instructor. I serve on the praise and worship team at my home church leading worship most Sundays. I also enjoy biking, hiking and camping, creative writing and reading.
