“As a Fargo-area native and NDSU alumna, I have a deep-rooted passion for the University and its mission and dedication to our region. NDSU’s commitment to its students, faculty, and staff generates hope and opportunities for all. I am fortunate to engage with remarkable people who are equally passionate about higher education and NDSU. Together, our ambition is to create and facilitate transformative opportunities for our students. Go Bison!”
