I have worked at Saint Mary's since 2000 – first in graduate admissions and then in marketing and communication. Since 2007, I have been the director of website and web development, in charge of the university’s online presence. I directly manage or supervise a number of websites for the university. My duties include content strategy, website front-end development, software and systems review, training subject matter experts/editors and creating training materials/presentations. 

In addition to my work in the Communication and Marketing office, I am the administrator for our Salesforce CRM.

I am also a visual artist, creating mosaics using stone, glass, found metal; paintings using encaustic paints, making some of my own paint from the beeswax from my partner's beehives; and sculptures using metal, concrete, wood, glass, stone, and found objects.
