Admissions Staff Bio:

What place in the US would you most like to visit? Why? 
That’s a toss-up between Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon. As to the ‘why,’ it’s probably just because they are natural wonders of the world and to have them so close I thought would be a truly awesome experience.

What place outside of the US would you most like to visit? Why? 
That would have to be Austria. That is where my great-grandparents on both sides are from and I’d love to see if I can find any distant relatives. I know what city in Austria both great-grandparents on my mother’s side were born in so it would be great to investigate that area.

Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? 
Not a chance -- why would I want to do that? However, I do untie them to put them back on!

What are you listening to right now? 
iHeart Radio: Big Classic Hits

Which is the best vacation you’ve ever had in your life? 
I spent a few days with one of my sisters in Las Vegas. It was a very enjoyable time to just spend some quality time with her and all the people-watching and site-seeing we did. There was very little gambling done but I sure wish I had worn a pedometer to see how much we walked. The sights, sounds and smells were unbelievable. Pictures didn’t do the night sky of Vegas justice. You have to see it ‘live.’

Desk: messy or organized? 
I try to keep it organized, but sometimes it's an organized mess.

Why do you like living in this area? 
Menomonie isn’t too small or too big.  I currently live within the city limits where I'm close to a bike/walking path as well as shopping area but yet in a quiet residential area. Menomonie is close to the larger communities (30 minutes to Eau Claire and 45-60 minutes to the Minneapolis/St.Paul area) via I-94. Menomonie has the basics of what I need so I don't have to leave real often but yet I don't have to be gone a long time to experience something different whether it be shopping or the arts.
