office: Snyder Academic Center, Lower Level

I am originally from southern Indianapolis and came to the Fort Wayne area for college. After graduating with my bachelor degrees in public relations and communication studies in 2012, I moved to the Fort Wayne area and have been here ever since. After spending some time working in the public relations and advertising industry; I realized I wanted to pursue a different calling and began my career in higher education and earned my Master’s degree in Student Affairs & Higher Education from Indiana State University in 2018.

After spending almost seven years helping prospective students navigate the college search process as an admissions counselor, I am excited to now work with current college students and help them make the most of their time in college as a Student Success Advisor. I am looking forward to meeting with students and hearing their stories, goals, and dreams and helping them strategize how they can be successful during their time as a college student and what success might look like for them personally. In my free time, you can find me playing Ultimate Frisbee, running around town on the trails, watching a good movie, or spending time with my family and friends.

office: Snyder Academic Center, Lower Level

My journey with Indiana Tech began in 2014 when I began pursuing a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership through the CPS online program. I worked full-time while attending an online program, and because of this, I understand some of the challenges our students currently face while earning their degree. In 2018, I decided to transition from nonprofit work to higher education because I desired to provide current students with the same help I was given during my educational experience. I accepted a position in the Career Center as a Career Coach for CPS students, and enjoyed working with the population of which I was once part. In my current role as a Student Success Advisor, I continue to work with students who are striving to complete their degrees while balancing both personal and professional responsibilities. My job is to pour into every student I come across, encourage them to persevere even when it gets tough, and celebrate their wins as they achieve their goals.

My advising truths I aspire to live by are being honest and genuine. I would not ever tell a student something I would not do myself. I strive to live a balanced life and I encourage my students too, also. I look forward to connecting with you.

I’ve been at Indiana Tech since January 2021.  Coming to Indiana Tech is was coming home for me as I’m originally from the Northern Indiana Area. I have a Bachelor’s in History from Indiana University South Bend and a Master’s in History from Ball State University.  I spent the past four years working in student success in college athletics at the University of Memphis and Illinois State University.  I enjoy helping students learn how to find tools and processes that work for them, as well as helping them advocate for themselves.

In my free time, I like spending time with my family and friends, knitting/crocheting, reading, cooking, learning, traveling, and working on my life goal of petting all of the dogs.
