UNC Financial Aid Staff
Director of Financial Aid
Iíve been assisting families for more than 30 years get through this ever so important government ďmazeĒ of financial aid. Iíve been helping students obtain financial aid ever since I started my graduate school internship at Central Michigan University back in 1981. CMU is where I obtained my MA Degree. Prior to that, I received my BA from Michigan State University. For the past 18 years, I was Asst Dean\Director of Student Financial Services at Western State College in Gunnison. Even though I loved my time in the mountains, Iím thrilled to be a part of the UNC community where there is such a positive energy and optimism.
As a Financial Aid Counselor in the Scholarship Department, my responsibilities include assisting students and parents with the FAFSA application, verifying of tax documentation & counseling students on various aspects of financial aid & itsí requirements. I am also the Reisher liaison for the Reisher Scholars & the point of contact for the Denver Scholarship Foundation students. I earned my Bachelor degree in History & Social Science from Oklahoma Panhandle State University & will begin my Masterís in Educational Leadership in the summer. I have been at UNC since December 2005.
I am so excited that I became a part of the UNC team in September 2009! I love everything about UNCóthe beautiful campus, the educational opportunities, & all of the people who make it thrive! It is a great pleasure to work with students & determine the best way to help them pay for their education.
I was born & raised in Iowa, & that is where I began my financial aid career. I started as a work study student while working on my Bachelor of Arts in English/Secondary Education at William Penn College. I taught high school English & Speech for several years in Iowa before moving to Colorado in July 2002. I returned to the financial aid world in August 2003 & have never looked back. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions or concerns regarding your financial aid.
Having lived in WA, MI, PA, & MN, Iím thrilled to have found a home for myself in Colorado. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2004 with a BS in Psychology. Working at UNC, I have come to greatly appreciate what a smaller university has to offer students both academically & socially. Working with the ever-expanding study abroad program, itís great seeing students expand their horizons & experience the world from a new perspective. Aside from being one of the greatest experiences in my life, college opened up many doors for me & I strive to make it available to everyone.
I began my employment at UNC during 1987. During these past years I have had the opportunity to work within different positions at UNC. Starting my employment at UNC, in what was at one time known as the Teacher Education Center, I enjoyed working with students as they prepared to become teachers. Within three years an opportunity of employment was offered to me in the Office of Financial Aid. Here I am years later! There have been many changes, challenges & opportunities during these years. I believe I have remained in the same department all these years because of these constant changes & challenges which occur daily. I need change, I like change & I do not want to become ďstagnantĒ in a job. I like to be challenged. Because of this personal need to be challenged I have held different positions within this office. I have worked in the file/tracking area, Assistant to the Director, customer service area & now my current position as Loan Processor. With each position I had the opportunity to learn many aspects of the ins & outs of financial aid, work directly with staff, students & outside entities. I believe to be good at your job you must be able to reach out & accept change, learn as much as you can when opportunity presents itself, & most of all treat others with respect.
I am a UNC graduate & have worked for UNC for 14 years. I enjoy working with students & that is what keeps me excited about my coming to work every day. Thanks for choosing UNC & I look forward to working with you in the future.
Business Manager/Assistant to the Director
I started at UNC in 2009 in the Office of Financial Aid. I am an inaugural journalism graduate of the Freedom Forum Diversity Institute at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. I enjoy working directly with helping students and parents navigate through the financial aid process as well as enjoy taking classes on campus.
I have worked at UNC for 15 years. I started at the health center when it was in Decker Hall. I was the upstairs receptionist. I worked there about a year & a half before I applied in financial aid. I have worked in financial aid ever since in the scholarship area. I enjoy my job because it is fun to be able to inform a student of a scholarship they have been offered.
I am married with three grown children, but I am not a grandmother yet. Whew! So, no one should call me Grandma.
