I attended the University of Maryland where became an active member of the fraternity and sorority community and studied Sociology and Leadership Studies.  After graduation, I moved to Indiana where I enrolled at Indiana University’s Higher Education and Student Affairs program. During this time, I held an assistantship at DePauw University.  I then transitioned into a fulltime position at DePauw as a Greek Life Coordinator. My passion for the fraternity and sorority experience then led me to UW-Madison as the Assistant Director of Greek Life!
