"Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you capable of becoming."-John Wooden

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to be a an elementary school teacher growing up. When I reached college, I thought I wanted to be a sports journalist & then changed my mind a few times. I’m excited that I’ve ended up at KU as an Academic Advisor.

My favorite place on campus is…
The Campanile. As a KU grad, I got to take part in the tradition of walking down the hill, which is think is the absolute best tradition KU has and KU has some great traditions. Also, my first date with the husband ended with us talking for hours atop of the campanile, he later proposed in that same spot 2.5 years later. So the campanile definitely has a special place in my heart.

My favorite KU memory is…
Winning the National Championship my freshman year in 2008. I am a huge sports fan and one of the reasons I came to KU was for KU basketball. I remember running down to Mass Street to celebrate and just high fiving anyone and everyone.
