ABOUT ME

My main drivers are compassion and connection, and I am always interweaving these values into the work that I do, whether that be creating communications content, managing projects, or teaching tomorrow’s leaders.

Currently, I am bringing compassion and connection into college communication courses, where I encourage my students to listen, try on different perspectives, and use their voices to create a more just world.

Previous employers would describe me as innovative and forward-thinking. I am the type of person who is constantly experimenting with new ideas and trying to create better ways to accomplish goals. That currently manifests as developing courses that re-infuse curiosity, learning, and student ownership back into college education. In positions past, it’s manifested as developing more efficient ways to communicate with employees at all levels of an organization.

More importantly, I like to think that I am a spirited woman who brings enthusiasm and extra life to a team (I even won the Graduate Spirit Award in grad school.😝). This quality of mine helps me bridge divides in groups, motivate my colleagues, and results in a more productive work ethic and output among the teams in which I’ve participated.

Outside of work, I am an avid motocamper who loves to travel, play guitar, dance, and stay physically active.
