Degree: B.S. in Human Development and Family Sciences

Year: 2019

Currently living: California

Military affiliation: U.S. Air Force, veteran

Role in the military: Staff sergeant; I worked for the Armed Services Blood Bank Center where I was the section lead for inventory and distribution; I got products to where they need to go in a timely manner while ensuring the integrity of each unit.

Ask me about: Balance and time management are key ingredients to success, whether in or out of the military. I can answer a wide variety of questions, and I’m ready to help you understand this “school thing” a little better. It can be a little scary getting started. Actually, it’s nerve-wracking throughout, but so worth it in the end. I’ve gotten divorced, became a single mother of two, moved across the Pacific Ocean, studied for promotion, attended part time and full time, joined a student council group, assisted with OSU’s accreditation, made friends, got a civilian certification in medical laboratory, applied for military tuition assistance, applied for loans, scholarships, and FAFSA! I am here to help you.
