After graduating from UD, I worked for large insurance company for 24 years. I would drive by UD on my way to work and always felt a tug at my heart to return. The opportunity presented itself and I’m back where I belong. I love working with our student ambassadors and being around coworkers that are truly happy to here. My husband and I enjoy riding bikes and playing board games with our 2 daughters.


When I visited UD, I knew very little about what the school had to offer academically or why I was even visiting, but after the visit, I knew this was where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life and figure it out. The faculty and staff want you to succeed academically, but they really want you to develop into the best person you can be. The Marianist tradition is real; it’s not just something we talk about, it’s something we do. At UD, you are welcomed, respected, valued, and encouraged to learn, serve and love. My words can only attempt to describe how I feel about this place. UD is much better experienced than described.
