Her goal is to build relationships with staff and faculty across campus to increase the number of students obtaining experiential learning opportunities and serve as an educator on the importance of out-of-classroom experiences. She has a heart for serving underrepresented populations and enjoy creating opportunities for all students to realize their talents and find success. In her free time, she loves exploring and trying new things - whether it's an activity, food, or city (but especially food).
