As a member of the Advancement team, she will carry out the work of launching our Career Connections program which seeks to strengthen and form new mutually beneficial partnerships with industry partners who hire Riverland graduates. She brings passion for Riverland and experience in developing relations with community partners in Albert Lea, Austin, and Owatonna.

She brings organizational management experience through her work as a director of non-profit childcare center to the position and the college. Because the position is flexible, she travels to all three campuses. While at those sites she will build relationships with staff, faculty, and students.
