Marketing Coordinator

Year Started at Mercy College 2005

Advice to Students

Treat others as they want to be treated.

Professional History

For 10 years I oversaw the direct marketing for a deluxe international group travel company that planned and operated tours for every major college and university alumni association in the nation.

Working with colleges and their respective alumni from around the nation has allowed me to better understand the importance of institutional affinity. Which in turn helps to effectively communicate with the variety of constituents at Mercy College of Health Sciences.

Personal History

Having a mother and a wife, in the nursing profession allows me unique insight into the mind of health profession student.

After meeting my wife at the Heart Connection Oncology Camp (now Cancer Connection) in Boone, Iowa as counselors, we married and moved back to my hometown of Chicago. Eleven years later, we returned to central Iowa near her family. We have three energetic daughters who keep us on our toes running them to/from practices/games and activities.
