I have been an Academic Advisor at CU Boulder since 2014; working with students in the Leeds School of Business before joining the College of Engineering and Applied Science in 2019. Before coming to Boulder, I supported college students at a variety of educational institutions in the US and abroad, including the University of Arizona, University of Maryland College Park, the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and the University of Sydney in Australia. From teaching first-year seminars and building professional skills, to exploring major options and customizing academic plans, I truly love my work with students - helping them prepare for success in college and beyond.

I am a native of Phoenix, AZ, and received my Bachelor's in Psychology from the University of Arizona and Master's in Counseling and Personnel Services from the University of Maryland College Park. I've lived in Colorado since 2014, with my husband, two kids, and dog. I enjoy traveling, skiing, football, board games, and spending as much time as possible outside in the Colorado sun!
