Biography

My favorite part about working for CASS is…
The people. And how many different areas of study and types of classes there are. The College has many interdisciplinary courses, so the range of what students are interested in can be very broad, intersectional, and complex.

If you only had 1 day to explore Lawrence, what would you do?
I’d take the East Lawrence historical walking tour, grabbing coffee at Decade and saying hello to the plants at Jungle House. After that, I’d visit Mass Street and stop in for records at Love Garden, books at the Raven, and art at Wonderfair. Lunch must be Burrito King. In the afternoon, I’d go to KU’s campus to see Potter’s Lake and the Spencer Museum of Art. Finally, I’d watch the sunset from the levee on the north side of the river.

Advice to college students:
The most important and enduring relationship we have is with ourselves. So even if times are difficult and you struggle, you can always come back to yourself when you are ready.
