Personal Quote/Hobbies:  I want to be part of the support network for students as they gain confidence in navigating a new environment, meeting new people and learning subject matter at the college level.  Watching students transition during their college years from a freshman to post-graduation is amazing.  I am here to help!

In my spare time I enjoy all water sports, biking and traveling.
