As the Assistant Director, my primary responsibility is being the liaison between the students and the business operations of Rountree Commons. This includes accounts receivables, payment plans, housing agreements, coordinating move-in & move-outs, and ordering facility supplies for all of Rountree Commons. I am a proud Wisconsin native my entire life so I am able to answer any questions you have about Platteville. 

My office is located on first floor of Rountree Commons in room 150.  You can contact me at or by phone at 608.567.3881 during our office hours of 8:00a.m.-5:00pm.


I am in my first year as the Assistant Director of Facilities, a position I started in October 2013.  I am a native of the area-born and raised in Lancaster, WI.  I earned my Associate’s Degree from Northeast Iowa Community College as an Industrial/Commercial Electrician and then went on to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Construction Management at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.

As the Assistant Director, I am responsible for keeping Rountree Commons operating and looking better than it did the first day it opened.    I am always looking for new ways to improve the building and would welcome your thoughts and ideas.  Prior to my current position, I worked for C.D. Smith Construction as a Project Engineer and served as the Assistant Project Manager for the construction of Bridgeway Commons here at UW-Platteville.  My office is located on the first floor next to the Fitness Center in Room 182.  You can contact me or by phone at 608.567.3882 during our office hours of 8:00a.m. - 5:00p.m.
