Tonnett Luedtke--Director of Academic Advising and Discoveries Orientation

I was born and raised in Houston, TX. My husband and I moved to Denver in 2004 in order to be close to the mountains. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Houston and a Master of Arts in Higher Education from the University of Denver. I enjoy running and ran my first marathon Oct 2007. Although I had a great time, I learned that I prefer shorter race distances 5k, 10k, half-marathons.
