I really enjoy helping students pursue their passions and gain meaningful experiences. I look forward to partnering with you as you explore career paths, and navigate the job search process. Please come see me to discuss choosing a major, finding an internship, applying for jobs, and networking. I can help you create or update your resume and cover letter, and prepare for interviews. I am constantly learning what's new, and building partnerships to better connect you to resources and opportunities.

Creative Works

I hold a master's degree in Linguistics from The University of Kansas, and an undergraduate degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have 10+ years’ experience in career advising, teaching and employer outreach.

In my spare time, I enjoy working out in a gym, reading, volunteering at my children’s schools, and cheering on my daughters’ volleyball and basketball teams. I also love exploring local parks, museums and festivals and traveling to Florida and Colorado with my husband and two daughters.
