Degrees held: B.A. in English from the University of Kansas City Missouri.

I am an Academic Advisor because: I enjoy helping students fulfill their dreams. As a first-generation college student, I know firsthand that trying to navigate through college can be challenging at times whether it be at the undergraduate level or graduate level. Students need to know their resources and next steps. This is where I help. We discuss goals, ambitions, and next steps so in a few years these students are walking away from KU with a degree that will open a door into their future.
