What I hope students get out of our program: When students graduate from our program, I want students to feel like our services helped them learn who they are, what they are good at, and that we gave them a space to grow into a more authentic version of themselves. Whether a student is super involved or only attends their semester meetings, I hope our students always know they have a TRIO team in their corner. I have a BA in Organizational Communication from WMU, and an M.Ed in College Student Affairs Leadership from GVSU. I enjoy crafting with my Cricut, kayaking, nature walks/hikes, playing board games, and spending time with family.
