Introduction

Hello! I’m excited to return to my alma mater here at the University of Cincinnati to work for an office that was so transformative for my own undergraduate experience. I spent the last four years working in residential education at another university in Washington D.C., and while there, I had the fantastic opportunity to see undergraduate students participate in politics, service and media on national and global levels. I look forward to bringing some of that knowledge and experience back here for my fellow Bearcats.

As an Assistant Director and Academic Advisor for the University Honors Program, I have the pleasure of working with some of the brightest and most driven students across the country.  I continuously strive to share my enthusiasm for technology and research in everything I do.

I’m a native son of the great state of Ohio and I pride myself on passion for family, friends, and football. As a student, I had at one point majored in all of the following: Architecture, Mathematics, Physics, Philosophy, and Spanish while dabbling Women’s Studies. I was also involved as a resident assistant, a member of a social fraternity, an orientation leader, in Campus Ministry, the Women’s Center, and Cincinnatus. To say the least, my interests have and continue to be varied. My studies now focus on the implementation of electronic games, media, and technology in the learning process.

Advice for Students

Lean into the discomfort. If you’re comfortable, you’re probably not learning anything new or struggling to develop a skill. Learning is a life-long adventure, so while it’s ok to take a rest now and again, never settle. But also don’t be afraid to fail. It’s usually in our failures that we learn the most about ourselves.
