With a passion for connecting people to careers they are passionate about, I am always eager to help others find their fit and maximize their potential. I love to hear people’s backgrounds and explore where their stories could lead next.

In my current role, I specialize in career development for business students while helping students explore, create, and articulate their career plans in order to find fulfillment in their professional lives. I lead BSAD 222: Career Development & Planning, moderate groups of students in BSAD 333: Internship & Job Search Strategies (online), and co-lead the Business Career Center's Peer Career Coaching Program, which was recognized by the Career Leadership Collective as an Innovation Showcase Winner in 2019.
