Office located in the Living Learning Center

A Texas native, Mindy has been the Director of Residential Living at Washburn since 2008.  She brings a variety of student housing experience from previous institutions: West Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University, and University of Kansas.  Her education includes a BBA in Marketing from West Texas A&M University; MA in Interdisciplinary Studies from West Texas A&M University; and is working on her dissertation for her Ed.D. in Higher Education from the University of Kansas.  Her passion for creating a safe, academically-centered living environment for Washburn students drives her to create and implement programs such as Here to Live, Here to Learn.

"I love student housing because I have experienced first hand the impact and the support that it can provide first year students. My on campus housing experience at WTAMU helped create the professional that I am today."

Things on Mindy's bucket list include: taking a train trip to anywhere, teaching a college course, completing her doctoral degree, and growing a garden.

"One part of Res Living that I most enjoy is how diverse the job is. Every day there is a new resident to meet and something new to learn.  I love the energy that comes from our Office Assistants, Desk Assistants, and Resident Assistants."

In her free time, Kim enjoys running, gardening, and tackling home improvement projects she finds on Pinterest.
