Biography

"Always remember, it’s simply not an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons." -- J.R.R. Tolkien

My favorite part about working for CASS is…
Being able to help students and serve as a mentor for them, in a myriad of forms. Whether that's helping with enrollment and grad planning, serving as a point person connecting students to resources on campus, guiding students to opportunities like Study Abroad or internships, or just being a listening ear; I love it all.

My favorite KU memory is…
Being one of the last groups let into the final Mizzou game (after we lost our number at 6am that day) and standing up at the rafters as we watched T-Rob and crew destroy the tigers in the most explosive game I’ve ever seen.

If you only had 1 day to explore Lawrence, what would you do?
Eat at Big Biscuit, then go exploring on Mass Street in beautiful, 75 degree weather (making sure to stop by Brits in particular), then getting lunch at the Casbah before heading to the Mutt Run with my puppy and hiking Clinton Lake, before ending the day with dinner at Paisano’s and getting ice cream at Silas and Maddy’s.
