I collect buttons (campaign buttons, advertising buttons – you name it). I have over 10,000 of them, amassed since 1970!!! I am a Golden-Retriever-lover – and proud “momma” of my beloved Abigail and Iris!! BOOKS – I am never far from one and am usually in the middle of reading more than one.
I came to Clarke (in July 2008) because of the spirit here. Faculty and staff are all genuinely interested in helping students grow. I have the ability here to know students individually and to help them be successful in their maturation. It is a great place to be surrounded by others who want to help you accomplish your goals.
Favorite part of Dubuque:
Eagle Point Park – great walking areas plus spectacular views overlooking the Lock & Dam on the Mississippi River. You can be in Iowa, see Illinois and Wisconsin, and know that the river you ‘re standing along runs from Minnesota to Louisiana – it helps me feel connected to so many others.
