About Me

I am originally from Nebraska, although life has taken me to various states, Spain for a few months, and now back to Colorado. My background is in Communication Studies and Spanish. I am passionate about higher education and am excited to continue supporting and advocating for students as you navigate the numerous challenges and rewarding experiences of college. I am here to listen to you, help with your degree plan, set goals with you, and connect you to additional resources. Ultimately, my goal is to provide tools and support that empower you to succeed and make the most of your time at UCCS!

Outside of work, I am often running, hiking, cooking, reading, learning languages, and spending time with family, friends, and my dog.
