Undergraduate Program Assistant • Parking & Transportation Liaison
Geological Sciences

I am the Undergraduate Program Assistant and the Parking & Transportation Liaison. I have a B.S. in Marine Science and Geology from the University of Miami, and an M.S. in Geological Sciences from CU Boulder. I worked with Dr. Jaelyn Eberle for my Master's program, and my research was centered on early Paleocene mammals from the Great Divide Basin in Wyoming. During my time as a graduate student, I worked for the CU Boulder Museum of Natural History in the vertebrate paleontology section, specifically sorting, identifying, cataloging, and digitizing fossils. I graduated in May of 2019, and then went to work for a law firm in Denver as a records specialist. I'm excited to now be back in the Geological Sciences Department!

In my free time I love to engage in all sorts of creative arts like sewing, wheel-throwing pottery, and writing. I am in the (early) stages of trying to get my first novel published!

Come to me for student enrollment, course scheduling needs (building new courses, revising existing courses, scheduling upcoming semesters), and for parking & transportation-related issues (renting in-state vehicles, applying for parking permits, etc).
