Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Jeet joined the Penn State community in August 2014 and spent five years at University Park in positions both in Residence Life and Auxiliary Business Services. She started at Penn State Altoona as the Director of Residence Life in July 2019. The Penn State pride everyone shares is a big reason she fell in love with Penn State, and she hopes all students find their "why" here at Penn State Altoona.

Jeet has a passion for helping people learn life skills; she's a lifelong member of Girl Scouts and developed her soft skills selling cookies door-to-door in the sub-zero Minnesota winters! Her cookie sales helped fund her annual trips to Girl Scout camp, and, for three summers during college, Jeet worked at the same camp she grew up attending. Her favorite season is fall, as she spends most weekends outside cheering on Penn State Football or watching the Minnesota Vikings - skol!
