About Me

I have been with Westminster since 1990, and enjoy the opportunities and relationships that my position provides.  I received my Bachelor of Arts from Westminster (Telecommunications) in 1988, and later completed my Elementary Education Teaching Certification in 2003. After working in professional broadcasting, I served the college for 24 years as Director of Audio Visual Services.  In 2014, I became Technical Operations Manager for the college's radio and television programs, and in 2019 I also became the Media Systems Engineer for ITS. I oversee coordination of all facilities and technology for the Broadcasting and Media Production program, including Broadcast equipment, the television and radio studios, the remote truck and all remote transmission equipment. I coordinate and train the sports broadcast teams, and all remote broadcast crews. I also monitor the performance of classroom, event, and digital signage systems, continually assessing all stages of operations to ensure that problems are solved, and manage the college's online equipment lending systems.
