My work centers around supporting Moodle and Canvas. This includes troubleshooting issues, performing the analysis for and testing of integrations between the PeopleSoft student information system, library systems, Identity Management Systems and Canvas and Moodle.


I have worked at the University of Minnesota for over 29 years. My first 12 years were in the Graduate School’s Student Service Office where I cleared doctoral students for preliminary and final exams and degree clearance and later worked as a manager and an assistant to the dean. My last 17 years have been in the Office of Information Technology working as an analyst on UM Reports, the Data Warehouse, the PeopleSoft Financials implementation, Moodle and Canvas. I have a BA in English from the U of M.
