CCU Role: Coordinates sponsorship events, preview programs, special events, and social media marketing.

I grew up in Kansas City in a family that served on the field staff of Young Life — a high school outreach ministry — and my dad also pastored a church. I was always surrounded by people that genuinely loved the Lord and desired to pursue Him. After college, I completed my Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy, served both the international and domestic arms of Young Life and then managed a wedding and event planning company. As eclectic as my background sounds, I have loved every experience and can see how God chose to weave all of my passions together to bring me to CCU as the Associate Director of Admission for Marketing and Events.

In my role, I plan many events for prospective students — on campus and around the country — that highlight who CCU is as a university and how the Lord is changing the lives of our students. I oversee our student ambassador programs where I mentor 40 current students as they represent our University in various roles, as well as our daily and group visit programs. Additionally, I manage our marketing messaging and campaigns and our major sponsorships such as Dare2Share. A typical day for me might be planning and organizing an event at the Brown Palace hotel, out on a photo shoot capturing our students serving in local ministries or enjoying our beautiful state, or co-teaching our Freshmen Year Integration class. The best part about my role, though, is having the chance to show hundreds of students annually what an amazing University this is through on campus visits and events that showcase our distinctions as well as our great state of Colorado, and are really a blast for prospective students to attend. That’s why my role here at CCU is such a perfect fit and blessing to me. I have the opportunity to work day in and day out with faculty, staff and students who want to grow in their knowledge of Jesus Christ and genuinely want to draw students here who can benefit from all this institution has to offer.
