Undergraduate Academic Advisor


My job is to help guide students through their academic journey towards graduation! I can help connect you to resources within the department, college and university that students will use throughout their undergraduate career.


I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in 2017 and a Master's Degree in Higher Education in 2020 at CU Boulder. Before starting as an Academic Advisor in Mechanical Engineering, I worked as a student assistant in the BUENO Center for Multicultural Education, as a tutor for the Boulder Valley School District, and most recently, as an Academic Advisor at Front Range Community College. I aspire to empower and assist students throughout their academic journey.

In my free time I enjoy playing video games, taking walks with my dog, trying new cuisine, and hanging out with family and friends.

The best way to reach me is via email. Appointments are available through Buff Portal Advising. Academic advisors are always busiest at the beginning of a semester as well around registration time. We look forward to working with students throughout the entire year, though scheduling appointments especially during these busy times makes the process easier for everyone.
