Professional Biography

I took a non-traditional path through college as an undergraduate student. After obtaining my associate’s degree at a local community college in Lincoln, Nebraska, I transferred to the University of Nebraska to earn my BA in Anthropology in 2019. Following graduation, I moved to Denver and joined the Undergraduate Admission team at the University of Denver. I have been a part of the DU family since January 2020 and am so happy to join Academic Advising.

I know that life throws us curveballs and can force us to change plans and adjust goals we may have originally set out to achieve. I look forward to working with students through these challenges and exploring all resources and options available to ensure success.

I value life-long learning and am pursuing an MA in International & Intercultural Communication, with a special focus on food access and insecurity.
