I approach each interaction with a student as an opportunity to help them see the strengths and abilities they already possess to be successful, along with providing support to empower them to reach their educational and career goals. My goal is to make sure that each student is seen, heard, and understood for who they are so that I can provide the best holistic support and resources possible.  

I am a first-generation college student and originally from Wyoming. I attended Boise State University in Boise, Idaho where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and thanks to encouraging mentors, went on to earn my Master of Education in Higher Education Administration and Student Personnel at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio.  Prior to joining the Office of Academic Advocacy in March 2022, I worked as a residence life coordinator and later as an academic advisor, both at USF, and then as an academic advisor at a community college in North Carolina. I look forward to providing you with the support and encouragement, that I was so fortunate to have, as you pursue graduation and the future you envision.
