I want to be part of the support network for students as they gain confidence in navigating a new environment, meeting new people and learning subject matter at the college level. Watching students transition during their college years from a freshman to post-graduation is amazing. I am here to help that happen.

In my spare time I enjoy all water sports and traveling.
