I completed my undergraduate degree in Sociology at Transylvania University (it's a real school, I promise) and my master's in Project Management and Organizational Leadership at Regis University. I've been working in student affairs for over six years and absolutely love it. I have a dog named Rocky and you may see me walking him in the area frequently. Feel free to come and pet him! I'm also a Lego and adventure enthusiast with a strong nerd side. My role here is to ensure that you enjoy your housing experience by supervising/training all student staff for the area, providing engaging and rewarding program opportunities for you, upholding community standards, and being an additional resource for you in all of your residential and academic endeavors. My office is located in the Lundstrom Center next to the front desk. So please stop by and introduce yourself sometime!

Hey, y'all! Here's a bunch of random info about me!- I'm a biological engineering major, I am from Riverton, Utah, I like long walks on the beach (or up a mountain), and my favorite band is Queen. My ultimate aspiration for the right side of my brain is to be a hippie and the left side of my brain wants me to be a mad scientist, so I'll probably do something between those two.
