About Me


I have been with Westminster since 1990 as the Director of Audio Visual Services, and enjoy the opportunities and relationships that heading such a dynamic academic support operation provides.  I received my Bachelor of Arts from Westminster (Telecommunications) in 1988, and later completed my Elementary Education Teaching Certification in 2003.

My list of responsibilities is a lengthy one, but here are some of the key components:
  • I am responsible for all things AV at Westminster. This includes all college purchased academic presentation technology and media resources, as well as research, production, promotion, support, and ensuring a wide array of legal compliances.
  • I actively seek to collaborate with faculty, students, and administration on academic projects associated with audio visual technology, media, and media services for teaching, learning and scholarship, as well as a number of Green AV initiatives.
  • I am also charged with coordinating, directing, assigning, and assisting with design and installation of technology in various college learning spaces.
