Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

I have experience as a teacher, attorney, and nonprofit professional, and have always been passionate about the strength and well being of communities, families, and mission-based enterprises.  Using the skills I have gained in my past professional life to help build a robust research and outreach agenda at the School of Human Ecology is a true pleasure.  I am excited about the work of SoHE researchers, and our ability to work with community partners and other researchers on campus to investigate and find solutions for the “grand challenges” of our times.  My goal is to contribute strategic and practical leadership and support to SoHE Centers and researchers and their collaborators to maximize our collective positive impact.  On Wisconsin!
