I am a native Floridian with a passion for transfer student advocacy, social justice, and coaching through success. I have worked for several companies and universities including The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios Orlando, Clemson University, Oregon Tech, and now Oregon State University’s Ecampus. My varied experience spans many functional areas within higher education including admissions, career services, social justice, diversity training, student programming, and academic advising.

I joined the Ecampus student success team in 2022 after working as the Transfer Services Manager and Pre-Admissions Advisor at the Oregon Institute of Technology in the Portland Metro area. Through my previous position, I was able to gain experience in advising and supporting transfer students from all backgrounds to pursue their goals in higher education. I believe in supporting students holistically and creating a coaching space that is open and affirming of all identities and people. I strive to create a safe space for ALL students and continually learn how I can be a better coach and ally to each one of the students that I coach.

Outside of my work, you can usually find me travelling to new places whether it be by car or plane. I love exploring new cities and places with my husband, Denis and I am very proud of the fact that we only have 5 states left to see before we have seen all 50 states. I am coming for Alaska next! I also enjoy spending time at my home cuddling with my two kitties, Tally and Honey and putting on any episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

I look forward to authentically supporting you along your college and life journey!
