As the Student Services Specialist for graduate programs, I work with prospective and current Master of Education, Education Specialist and doctoral degree seeking students. I provide advising for individuals who are searching graduate programs in education, understanding the admission's requirements and navigating the application process. Additionally, I support the current graduate students by helping them get oriented, understanding degree requirements, connecting with UW resources, and offering professional development. I enjoy and appreciate the intellectual interactions which I find both rewarding and inspiring for personal and professional development.
I received a Masters of Education degree in Student Affairs Administration in 2009 from Western Washington University and although a native of Colorado, I have lived in the Seattle area since 2012. Outside of my work with graduate students, I enjoy spending time with friends and also enjoy the host of indoor and outdoor activities offered by the Pacific Northwest and surrounding area. On occasion, I have been called a “foodie” appreciating many of the eclectic restaurants offered by the surrounding cities and suburbs of Seattle. I’m an avid sports fan, and in particular a diehard Denver Broncos fan. My greatest fulfilment is fostering social interactions which connect both my professional and personal life.
