Monday, February 8 is Thank-A-Giver Day at Illinois Wesleyan and we’re eager to celebrate generous Titans!

Thank-A-Giver (TAG) Day is the symbolic point during the academic year — about 70% of the way through — when tuition dollars are exhausted and Illinois Wesleyan relies on donor generosity to continue providing a world-class education and rewarding collegiate experiences.

Each and every year, every gift matters. Contributions benefit students and faculty, enhance academic excellence, and strengthen the IWU community.

Thank you to all who give back to move IWU forward.

Hello IWU family!
I thought I would pass on some updates as it has been a while since I have shared anything.

It’s been an exciting year professionally!  I continue to work for Mayo Clinic, where I have been since graduation from the IWU School of Nursing in 2001.  In April 2020, I was named the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences Nurse Practitioner Program Primary Care Preceptor of the Year.   In keeping with my commitment to advancing Nurse Practitioner Education, I was also promoted to Assistant Program Director for the Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences Nurse Practitioner Program, supporting primary care and women’s health in October 2020.

I truly believe that my interest in nursing education was sparked during my time at IWU; surrounded by so many brilliant and passionate nurse educators definitely rubbed off!

Kindest regards,
