"It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters, in the end." ~ Ursula K. Le Guin


Growing up in an Air Force family I moved constantly, but Colorado is my favorite state. I have been an Academic Advisor for 15 years (6 as UCCS). I have four adult children and 2 granddaughters (ages 7 and 10). I value lifelong learning and strive to learn new things. I am excited to partner with students on their educational journey.
