What Brought Me to the HC

I chose to pursue a career in Student Affairs because of my experience as an Honors Scholar and WKU Spirit Master. I served as a graduate intern for H4, the Honors Freshman Orientation Retreat, which began my professional career with the Honors College. The Honors College has helped to shape my educational and personal passions, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve my alma mater.

 

A Little About Myself

I am blessed to have a job that I love, and to work with students who continue to inspire me each day. When I have the time, I love to bake and try new recipes.
