I have started my tenth year at United. My duties have varied through the years but I am currently working as a technology assistant as I am in charge of the districts iPads. I am currently the webmaster for our district website. Other duties include troubleshooting, imaging computers, inventory, and etc. Along with working at United, I am employed at Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) where I am the Sports Information Director and am an active member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). I provide coverage for eight sports that are all nationally recognized. My hobbies include announcing, photography, and following the Chicago Cubs, Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Vikings, and the Iowa State Cyclones. I have been announcing for the past 20 years. From 2012-2016, I announced at the Iowa Girls State Basketball Tournament, including 6 state championship games. I also do stats and/or announce for Boone High School Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Softball.
