About Me

I am the senior administrative aide in the Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI). Born and raised in the “big” City of Hancock, I graduated from Hancock High School and worked in banking for 25 years before coming to Michigan Tech in 2008. I married the love of my life, Ron Wade, on June 21, 1986. I am a caregiver for my family, and I enjoy doing volunteer work. My husband and I love to travel and hope to someday be “snow birds” (wintering in sunny Florida). I love working with students and enjoy taking on a “mothering” role. If you need someone to talk to, you can count on me.
