What I look for in a student:

We have so many resources on campus to help students be successful, so I am looking for students who want to get involved and take advantage of opportunities that will help them develop as a student and professional.  

A little about myself:

I recently moved from California and am loving the change of pace here in Cedar Rapids. I am a Husky momma to an 8 month old female Husky named Kona and a 3 year old male Husky named Bruce. I love the outdoors, so you can catch me exploring running and hiking trails with my pups!

Favorite music:

I love listening to jazz and hip hop, as well as instrumental music.

Favorite part of my job:

My favorite part about working in higher education is the people I meet. There has never been a day in my career that I have not been inspired by the people with whom I work. 

Favorite Cedar Rapids hotspot:

Indian Creek Nature Center or the Czech Village

Favorite place on campus:

Art makes me happy so my favorite place on campus is the Dows Fine Art Center. I love admiring the student artwork. 

Favorite TV show:

Sex and the City

Dream job:

Something creative like an artist or dancer. 

What are three things that people don't know about you:

  • I love breakfast burritos.
  • I have four tattoos.  
  • I have ran 6 half marathons.
