Hello! A Milwaukee native and UWM alumna, I am super excited to help new freshmen become part of the Panther family. I was a shy first-generation college student and chose UWM because it was close to home. My experience at UWM allowed me to break out of my shell and it gave me many opportunities to connect with my community and the world. During my academic career, I took advantage of study abroad and the small class sizes to connect with my professors and professionals across the globe. Ultimately, I realized I had a passion for education and became a high school educator after graduation. 

In my role as an Admissions Advisor, my goal is to help you learn more about UWM, making sure it’s the right fit, and navigating the admissions process. I had a transformative experience here on campus, and I hope that you do too!
