About Me

I’m incredibly excited to be working with passionate students, staff, faculty, and community members to create a more culturally and socially conscious and inclusive campus community! While I’m not from the UP originally and have never experienced a true Yooper winter yet, I consider myself an “Outdoorsbian” and am elated to spend as much time outdoors [especially in the winter] as possible. In addition to loving the outdoors, I also consider myself a subpar weightlifter; a pizza/donut/coffee aficionado [which may feel contrary to the fact prior]; a hip hop enthusiast; a highly invested cat lady [I have two very needy cats – Mildred and Oswald]; and someone who loves people. My office is on the 2nd floor in CDI and whether you’re just passing through for some coffee, in need of a chat or a hug, or just want to come and discuss life – I’m here [with a big couch and a bowl of candy]!
