Where I come from

I have been Director of Alumni Relations since January 2005. I grew up in a small town in Texas, along with my two triplet sisters and one older sister. Following graduation from high school, I worked in the medical field for several years in an administrative management role before I enrolled at Multnomah in 1996. I double majored in Bible & theology and women's ministry and minored in biblical languages and graduated from Multnomah with highest honors (Delta Epsilon Chi member, John Lawrence Biblical Studies award) in May 2000. In May 2010, I completed an M.A. degree in Ministry Management at Multnomah Biblical Seminary.

I joined Multnomah's staff in May of 2001, serving as Donor Relations Coordinator for four years before stepping into my current position.  In 2012, one of our faculty members introduced me to an amazing man, Bob Underwood — a widower with three incredible children: Meredith, Briana and Ford. On August 3, 2013, we were married and entered into a covenant relationship. We enjoy traveling, drag racing and spending quality time with family and friends.
