I graduated from Northern Michigan University (NMU) with a Public Relations Degree in 2016. After graduating I interned & worked for several environmental non-profits, ranging from sustainable housing cooperatives to helping Latino youths get free environmental education based programming. Although I loved the environmental non-profit sector I decided I wanted to transition into working at a University. As a first generation college student, I struggled to get through my undergrad but with the help of great mentors at NMU I was able to get my degree. I owe a lot of my success to those who’ve supported me through school and now I want to give back and help students succeed in their undergraduate career.

Outside of the university I enjoy rock climbing, photography, and spending as much time outdoors as possible
