My role as community planning extension specialist for the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University and for the Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant program allows me to collaborate with Purdue Extension staff, community leaders, stakeholders, and interest groups within the Great Lakes Region through programs that combine research-based tools with community planning processes to help determine and achieve the public interest.
I am a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners, and have five years of municipal planning and economic development experience with the City of Lafayette, Indiana. I earned a Master’s degree of urban and regional planning from Ball State University and a Bachelor’s degree in history from Monmouth College. I am a licensed secondary educator in the State of Illinois.
