What did you do before joining Columbia College? I was a student at Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff, Mo.
Hobbies/interests I love to play sports. I think thatís a requirement for a job like mine! I especially like to run. I also enjoy scrapbooking and eating out with friends when time allows.
Tell us about your family My entire family lives in Canada so I donít get to see them too often. My parents have been together for 34 years and love to come to Missouri on vacation. I have an older brother who is married with a son, Nolan.
Tell us about someone that greatly influenced you In high school I hated to run but a friend convinced me to come to cross-country practice. I went just to make my friend happy and ended up loving it Ö mostly because of the coach. She made me look at running in a different light and taught me to appreciate all the little things in life. She is one of my best friends to this day and I wear a charm she gave me in 1997 for good luck whenever I race or play sports.
If you could do anything in the world, what would that be? Skydiving! Someday!
