What I look for

St. Ambrose is like one big "family." As I meet high school students from across the region and beyond, I look for students who value that and the other special qualities of our university – students who have an inherent drive to succeed personally and to help others.

A bit about Lisa

It may sound corny but I wouldn't be here today without St. Ambrose. When my (future) dad saw my (future) mom walk down the Beehive stairs, it was love at first sight! Even after many years of marriage, my parents still talk about their fond memories of St. Ambrose.

I had the chance to do a wonderful internship at Walt Disney World, and then I came back to Davenport. I want to share a bit of the "Disney Way" with prospective students. I hope to offer each family an experience they won't forget. Come visit soon!

What I like about my job

Everything! I am social and love to meet new people.

My hobbies

If I'm not on campus you'll most likely find me reading, shopping or watching bad reality shows.

Connections to SAU

My dad is an alumnus and so is my "Honarary Uncle" Dave, who can't say enough good things about St. Ambrose.

Most commonly asked question

How far is it to SAU?
And Lisa's answer: Let me check my GPS! St. Louis = 4.5 hours driving time, Des Moines = 2.5 hours, Rockford = 2 hours, Dubuque = 1 hour.
