Why did you get into student affairs?
I wanted to provide the mentorship and advising opportunities that I received to future generations of college students.

What do you find meaningful in your work?
Helping students use their fraternity and sorority membership experience to develop life-long skills.

What are you doing to ensure equity and inclusion are part of your everyday practice?
Self-reflection and staying connected to a strong community of practitioners and faculty.

If you didn't go into student affairs, what profession do you think you would have chosen and why?
Secret Service Agent - I have always been fascinated by the White House and presidential history and it would be amazing to be next to the politicians making history. My undergraduate degree is in Public Affairs Management and my original plan was to work for the federal government in some capacity.  

What would a non-student affairs friend say about you?
Sarcastic, funny, and reserved. 

If you could have a super power, what would it be and why?
I wish I could teleport. Living far from my friends and family is difficult sometimes and I wish I could teleport to other parts of the country and world to save time and travel costs!

What is your favorite non-work weekend activity?
I wish I could teleport. Living far from my friends and family is difficult sometimes and I wish I could teleport to other parts of the country and world to save time and travel costs!
