Where was the first NACCU conference you attended?
Nashville - 2001, as a member of the NACCU Office staff.
What is your favo(u)rite thing about volunteering with your NACCU committee?
Getting to know fellow members and feeling like, in some small way, I am helping the association. I wish I had time to do more for the association.
What show are you binge-watching right now?
Great British Baking Show - it all looks so good!
What is your go-to coffee / tea order?
Neither, I am a Diet Coke addict.
What is your favorite memory from your own student days?
I was an RA in an all-Freshman residence hall...a long time ago... when the legal drinking age was 18. That is where I met my husband. Our first encounter was when I wrote-up a group of students for "public display of drunkenness"; it was not love at first sight. It all worked out; we've been married 33 years.

I have 12 kids - one son, one daughter-in-law, one grandson, one daughter, one soon-to-be son-in-law and seven Dwarf Nubian goats.

Watching COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!!
