I joined the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department in May of 2009 and am pleased to be a part of such a motivated and enthusiastic team. I look forward to continuing the department’s reputation which includes a friendly, helpful office.
I grew up on guest ranches across the West, earned a business degree at the University of Wyoming, and worked for a variety of businesses from Dallas, Texas to White Sulphur Springs, Montana. After settling in Bozeman I spent 17 years planning small, guided group tours for a Bozeman-based specialty travel company. My husband, Rodney, is a fishing outfitter and long-time Bridger ski-patroller. Our grandson Kelwyn lives in the Portland area with his happy parents. I love to garden, read, ski, camp, flyfish, hunt, and hike. Rodney and I have great fun exploring backroads and small towns of Montana and beyond.
As Accountant for M&IE, Michelle maintains the accuracy and integrity of all departmental accounts. She provides estimates and projections for fiscal planning, insures proper appointment and timely compensation to all employees, and initiates payment to vendors for goods and services received by the department.
Laura joined the M&IE office in August 2011. She graduated from MSU - College of Nursing in 1993. She is excited to be back on MSU- Bozeman's campus working with the M&IE Students. Go CATS!
