I have two daughters attending Hilltop. My oldest has been a Cottontail, a Meadowlark and a Bobcat. My youngest is loving her first year at Hilltop in the Hummingbird Room. I am a new parent board member in 2017, and I’m excited about the opportunity to support the continued success of this great organization. I currently serve on the Communications Planning Committee and as co-chair of the Family Support Committee.
I have a bachelor's in elementary education from Emporia State University, and I am the Marketing Print Production Manager for Payless ShoeSource. I have worked at Payless for 19 years, and I’ve enjoyed being part of a national retail brand through years of great success as well as through challenging times. My strengths include project management, process improvement, team building, leadership and communications.
I was born and raised in Kansas, and I have loved living in Lawrence for nearly 20 years. In college, I was a fastpitch pitcher on the women’s softball team at Emporia State. When I have free time, I love playing outside with my daughters, RV trips with the family, community events with friends, and playing sand volleyball.
