Biography

"Don't just fly, soar."- DUMBO

My favorite part about working for CASS is…
Meeting and creating so many meaningful and inspiring relationships with staff and students.

I chose to work in Higher Education because…
I find enjoyment with creating an even greater undergraduate experience for students that I had myself while being a student at KU. I enjoy being a viable source to students through your journey and helping them make the most out of their experience.

Advice to college students:
Explore the topics and subjects that interest you and don’t be afraid to really delve in. Sometimes the greatest experiences are those that go unplanned.
