Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I enjoy: Spending time with friends and family over a delicious meal and being at the beach. I absolutely love being by the ocean laying under the sun! It’s my happy place.

My favorite part of my job is: Meeting new people and learning about their interests and passions. It is extremely gratifying to build relationships with students and employers alike, and create connections and opportunities that will impact their personal and professional lives.

If I weren’t doing this job, I’d be: A professional salsa dancer, I danced over 10 years on a team and performed across the country. Many of my closest friends are those I’ve met through dance floor.

I'm passionate about: Traveling the world, and wish I could do it more! I love to learn about people and different cultures. My dream would be to make it to every continent.

Some small things that make my day better are: A good cup of coffee, spending time with my daughter, learning something new and a good laugh.
