Why did you decide to pursue a career in higher education?

As a first-generation college student, I wanted to be able to give back to my community.  I chose a career in higher education to help students, like myself, who may feel that college can be overwhelming.  Being able to help students overcome obstacles and reach their true potential is something I was born to do.

Tell us a random fact about yourself

Halloween is my favorite holiday!  I love to dress up!  Some of my past costumes have been Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Ursula, Medusa, and Velma from Scooby-Doo…just to name a few.
