Thank You Montana!

For the past two years I had the privilege to serve as the Montana SPR. As my term comes to an end, I wanted to share a thank you to all the SHOs across Montana I got the pleasure to work alongside. Thank you for the engaging monthly phone calls. Thank you for sharing your successes and challenges. Thank you for making this a great state.

I would like to give a special shout out to my director, Sandy Schoonover. Thank you for supporting and encouraging this professional development opportunity. Thank you to Jeff Rosenberry (MSU-Billings) and Jeff Bondy (MSU-Bozeman) for your encouragement two years ago at AIMHO to take on this position. 

Thank you to all the Residence Life professionals I have had the chance to meet and build friendships with over the past two years. I appreciate all you have taught me, and your enthusiasm for your students and this profession. This association is incredible, thanks to you!

I am delighted to share that Emily Weideman from Carroll College is the new Montana SPR for 2017 & 2018.

I hope to stay in touch with everyone across Montana, as I transition out of the SPR role. My AIMHO journey will continue with the Technology Chair position. Please do not hesitate to call me at 406-243-5095 or send me an email at
