Personal Biography:

I grew up in southeastern Wisconsin and found my way to Madison to work on my undergraduate degree as a transfer student. I loved it here so much, I’ve never left. After earning my undergraduate and graduate degrees on this campus, I continued working in student affairs as an undergraduate advisor and a graduate program coordinator. I love helping students navigate their own, unique paths into and through college and see student involvement as a valuable piece of finding a fit and making this experience meaningful.
