A Little About Me

I am the new Graduate Assistant primarily working with event coordination, social media, and the newsletter. I am getting my Master's Degree in Higher Education Leadership in the School of Leadership and Education Scienes (SOLES). In the Spring of 2014, I studied abroad in Siena, Italy and taught English to the local schoolchildren there. After I graduate, I hope to create study abroad programs that allow students to study abroad while taking classes that count towards their major and/or specific internships that allow students to get a global perspective of their future career.

NERDY THING TO DO

I really enjoy going to school and learning


What do you like about USD?

The campus is beautiful and I have found a close-knit community of friends within my cohort. SOLES has challeneged me to look at myself in a completely different light forcing myself to view my biases, assumptions, and stereotypes.

Military Affiliation

My dad has recently been selected as a Captain in the Coast Guard. He transferred his G.I. Bill benefits to me and this benefit is the only reason I am able to attend Graduate School.

Hobbies

I love to travel and experience new cultures. Through my study abroad experience and some family trips, I have been blessed to go to 10 countries and I hope to continue traveling in the near future.
