What I enjoy most about working for CU Boulder

I am intrigued by the unique qualities of each person and I like to focus on the differences between individuals. I appreciate/observe each person’s style, each person’s motivation, how each thinks, and how each builds relationships. I like to foster these unique qualities to develop the individual along with their role in the department. I especially enjoy helping those who have never been in the workforce before.


I received my BA in Sociology in December 2010 and my Professional Human Resources Certificate in December 2019. Throughout my undergraduate career, I worked as a student assistant in the Department of Mechanical Engineering where I supported multiple areas of the department. After my December graduation, I joined the Graduation Admissions team as an Administrative Assistant. I returned to the Department of Mechanical Engineering in November 2011 upon the retirement of the Administrative Assistant. From there, I developed my HR skills and grew into the HR Professional I am today. Outside of work, I enjoy time with my husband and our two dogs. We love being outside and going on adventures. I love to read, paint and find ways to be creative.
