About Laura

Hi there! My name is Laura and I am the Director for the TRiO SSS program. I first started at DCB in January of 2015 as a recruiter in admissions. In June of 2015 I took on the Title IX Coordinator position for Dakota College at Bottineau. With this title it is my job to educate students, staff, and faculty about the importance of Title IX and the resources that DCB has available to them. In January of 2016, I accepted a job as the TRIO SSS Career Coordinator. As a new recipient of the grant, I was able to help pave the way for the SSS grant at DCB. I most enjoyed advising students on their education path to career success. In the fall of 2018 I moved up as an Assistant Director where I continued to advise students, but also become a pillar of the grant. In August of 2019 I accepted the Director position and still continue to love my job and all the opportunities it gives the students of DCB. The small campus makes it easy to love my job and I enjoy the people that surround me at work. Some of the other titles I have is Mom and wife. My husband and I ranch just East of Bottineau and are the proud parents of two awesome little boys.
