What do you look for in a student? Someone that is passionate about learning, has an open mind and is ready to step out of their comfort zone. I look for students that make their voice heard and stand tall against all odds. Most importantly, I look for students that are eager to take on new challenges and opportunities, and are thrilled to join Kohawk Nation.

What I love about my job: I love that I get to build relationships with students and parents through the college decision-making process. I remember how amazing my admission counselor was and the great help she provided my family and I.  Now I look forward to doing the same with many future Kohawks and their families!
