Recruitment area: I work with students from California, Colorado, and Wyoming. I also work with all high school Juniors and Sophomores.

What I like about my job: I love that I get to connect and meet new students and that I get to help guide students further their education and helping them make life-changing decisions.

What I look for in a student: I look for students who are excited about the college experience and furthering their education! I also look for students who are ready to explore the different activities and opportunities Morningside has to offer. Whether it is athletics, music, art, government, etc., Morningside is a wonderful place and I can’t wait to work with students who want to experience the Morningside life.

Hobbies: I love to stay active and enjoy going on runs and working out. I love to watch movies, especially Harry Potter and Star Wars. I also enjoy listening to music and going to concerts with friends and family.
