Background

I am Director of the Office of Title IX and Title IX Coordinator for the University. My role is to work with University partners to build and sustain a safe, gender-equitable campus climate for all members of our community. I am responsible for serving as the central resources for all Title IX related matters including our efforts to identify and address instances of gender-based discrimination, harassment or violence. We focus on eliminating the behavior, preventing its re-occurrence and addressing its effects. I work with students, faculty, and staff to understand their options when they are impacted, oversee a fair and equitable investigation process and am responsible for supporting and developing programs, procedures, and learning opportunities that supporting survivors, address violations effectively and work toward prevention for the future. I am a DU alum, having received my MSW from the Graduate School of Social Work. I have over 30 years of experience working to address and prevent interpersonal violence and trauma as a psychotherapist and counselor, working in offender management, providing training and education to professionals and working to change public policy. The most rewarding aspect of my job is working with exceptional student, faculty and staff partners to create positive change on campus. I live with my wonderful husband and 17 year old dog.

Background

I am one of two Investigators in the Office of Title IX.  My role at the University is to investigate all claims of harassment, discrimination, and gender-based violence for the Office of Equal Opportunity and the Office of Title IX.

The most rewarding aspect of my job is working to create a campus that welcomes people from all walks of life and thrives on the diversity of its community members. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time outdoors. Did you know? I'm left handed.

Background

As a Title IX investigator, my primary responsibility is to investigate reports of discrimination based on a protected class to include sexual assault and sexual harassment for the Office of Title IX and the Office of Equal Opportunity. Prior to coming to the University of Denver, I have experience investigating child welfare cases and doing Title IX investigations in Alaska. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and an MBA. For me, the most rewarding aspect of my job is the attention needed for details. Seeing a case from beginning to end, where details are scattered and communication lines are broken is what drives me in my role. In my free time, I enjoy playing hockey, skiing and traveling. Did you know? My spouse and I have twin daughters who are a total blast!
