After stumbling in and out of college at multiple schools, I decided to give higher education one more try as a student at TMCC in the spring of 2003, when I accepted a peer advisor position in Counseling & Academic Advisement. As a double-dose first generation college student, I changed my major seven times searching for the perfect major and career, but it turned out I had already found it as an advisor. I enjoyed the process of working with my fellow college students so much that I changed my educational goals to prepare me to become a professional Academic Advisor. After completing my Associate of Arts at TMCC, I went on to graduate from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2008 with a Bachelor of General Studies with an emphasis in Biology & Theatre and a minor in English writing (in case I ever want to write plays about amoebas), a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership in 2010, and a Master of Education in Learning and Technology in 2022.
I try to create a welcoming and inclusive environment both in-person and virtually. I am here to support all students as they explore and pursue their educational goals, especially those dealing with uncertainty who are perhaps taking the scenic route through college as I once did.
I advise all students, regardless of major, including international students on an F-1 visa, military-connected students using VA educational benefits, and student-athletes.
Outside of work, I'm a Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Professional Life Coach who enjoys snuggles with my dog, paddle boarding, yoga, meditation, hiking, time in nature, and reading.
If you have questions, I'm here to help you find answers. Thank you for allowing me to support you on your educational journey!
