Involvement with SACUBO

In May 2017, I began my tenure at Appalachian State University and became a member of SACUBO. I have been attending the Women’s Leadership Forum, Annual Meeting, and Fall Workshop conferences. I am a member of the Comprehensive and Doctoral Institutions Constituent Committee, currently serving as Vice Chair.

I enjoy the ever-changing environment and especially helping students, faculty, and staff accomplish their goals and the university mission.

When I am Not Working

When I am not working, I am gardening, ATV riding, hiking, kayaking, playing with my dogs, and hanging around outside in the Blue Ridge Mountains with my husband Leo.

Decision to Volunteer with SACUBO

I enjoyed meeting many of the volunteers at the Women’s Leadership Forum and the Fall Workshops. I became curious on how to volunteer and the opportunities available. It was extremely easy to find on the website. I submitted my interest, received a response, and became a member of a constituent committee – and I am now serving as Vice Chair.
