Current Residence: Omaha, Nebraska, and Minneapolis, Minnesota
Current Occupation: Vice President of Sales, Services, and Marketing at Evolving Solutions
I joined Evolving Solutions in January 2017 as the vice president of sales and services. In this role, I'm responsible for the sales, pre-sales services, post-sales consulting, and marketing pillars within the organization. Before joining Evolving Solutions, I was an IBM executive, serving last as vice president of sales, server solutions, for IBM North America. In that role, I had sales and profit responsibility for a $3 billion portfolio across Power Systems, z Systems, and the Server Linux brands.
I earned my MBA from Creighton University while working full-time. I serve as the president of the board of Nebraska HOBY Youth Leadership, chair of the University of Evansville Board of Visitors, and on the board of the Educational Foundation of Lambda Chi Alpha, Inc.
UE Alumni Activities/Why I Give Back
After graduation, I served on the Board of Trustees for three years as the student-elected trustee. After that time, I joined the Board of Visitors and have enjoyed spending time learning more about UE and giving back. I was fortunate enough to receive scholarship and grant funding to attend UE. Without that support, I would not have been able to attend the University. I feel honored and obligated to be able to be able to give back to this University that has helped shape me into who I am today.
Favorite UE Memory
A few memories stick out to me as especially awesome ones. Most notably, receiving a bid from Lambda Chi Alpha my freshman year; a very random snowball fight one winter in the front oval; and being able to serve as student body president my senior year. I loved every minute of my time at UE!
