"My two business degrees from LSSU were instrumental in preparing me to work at all levels of Edison Sault Electric (ESE), concluding with the privilege of becoming ESE President in 1998. My company also takes pride in that 14 out of a total of 17 management personnel and about 20% of hourly employees at ESE either have degrees from or have attended a substantial number of classes at LSSU. Finally, our company and employees have contributed in excess of $500,000 to various LSSU projects over the last 25 years. ESE Believes in Blue."

I am a graduate of The University of Michigan.  I was raised in Sault Sainte Marie (SSM), Michigan, home to Lake Superior State University.  I lived in Ann Arbor, MI for several years, and returned to SSM in 1994.  I have worked in higher education for nearly 20 years.  Prior to joining the Admissions team at LSSU, I worked in the Financial Aid Office for seven years.

My greatest passion is helping people take positive steps in the right direction to lead them to a brighter future.  I feel very strongly that education is a fundamental element of this goal.   

The features of LSSU that I feel are of tremendous value is our small size and our desire to take a personal approach to educating students.  Not only are the class sizes small so that students can feel comfortable asking questions and seeking help, but our professors are truly dedicated to teaching.  They are highly accessible to students, supplying one-on-one assistance when needed. 

It is my pleasure to assist students and parents in the admission process.  I thoroughly enjoy helping students identify areas of interest and a pathway to pursue their goals.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
