Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Minor in Computer Science Information Systems Option
I went to high school in northeastern Montana and know a little bit about cold weather! You could almost throw a rock from my house into Canada.
If you think your town or school is small, I've got you beat. I graduated in 1989 with 12 students (3 of which were exchange students) and our high school had 28 students enrolled! Needless to say, the school is now closed but we had a heck of a band program and basketball team along with some great academic programs.
I went to college in Billings, MT at what was then called Eastern Montana College (EMC). It's name has since been changed to Montana State University - Billings (MSU-B)...home of the Yellowjackets! I graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an Information Systems option and a minor in Computer Science (BSBA in Information Systems for short). After working in a bank in Billings for 2 years I decided to go into the construction business and design roof & floor systems. After almost 2 years I was transferred down to Colorado where I worked for 11 years as the lead roof & floor truss designer.
I started working here at GCHS in October of 2010 in the Library. In September of 2012 I moved down to the Main Office to become the Office Manager. I enjoy the staff and the challenges the job gives me each day.
