I joined the Department of Computer Science at CU in August 2018 as a Senior Undergraduate Academic Advisor. I earned my B.S. in Agriculture (Animal Science/Agricultural Communications & Journalism) from Kansas State University in December 2008, and my M.S. in Counseling and Student Development in December 2010, also from K-State. My experience in higher education student services includes 2+ years as a graduate assistant with K-State's Student Services for Intercollegiate Athletics (2009-2011), 3 years as the Retention & Learning Skills Coordinator at Manhattan Christian College (2011-2014), and 4 years as an academic advisor in the College of Education at K-State (2014-2018). Because my own undergraduate student experience was life-changing for me, I am passionate about helping my students learn and succeed and have fun throughout their college years!
During college, I was involved with The Navigators and participated in NCAA Division I athletics as a member of the K-State women's equestrian team. Now, besides advising college students, I enjoy coffee shops (hot chocolate, please!), running and working out, playing with my Shetland Sheepdog, and watching baseball, football, and Marvel movies!
