Undergraduate Major:

I became an advisor because:
I really valued the support and relationship with my undergraduate advisor. I love working with student in all stages of their college career. Advising allows me to make connections with students and provide the support they need to be successful.

My best advice for college students:
Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Try something new. New experiences can lead to a new passion, academic or career interest, or even a hobby.

My soapbox:
Use a planner, either physical or electronic. They are definitely key to staying organized.

My favorite KU memory is:
I’m still making memories as I haven’t been at KU for very long. I’ll definitely remember my first day on campus. It immediately felt like home.

What did you want to be when you were going up?
I wanted to be a carpenter/handywoman. I even had my own toy tool set and went around “fixing” things.

My favorite place on campus is:
I’m still exploring but right now I love sitting on the Baumgartner Terrace outside of Hawks Nest at the Kansas Union.

My superpower would be:
Time Control!
