Sue believes strongly that participation in our state, regional and national organizations is important, significant and professionally critical. "Joined through membership and participation in our organizations, we become like family to each other - we share our work lives and our personal lives - our struggles and our successes. We stay close even as we move from position to position within our institutions and as we move on to new adventures at other institutions across the country."

Prior to her time at University of Oregon, Sue worked for seventeen years at Iowa State University in several different Registrar's, Admissions, Student Services, and Enrollment Management roles.
