Hello Future Panthers! Milwaukee has been my home for over 10 â€‹years, and I have loved every moment minus winter and second winter. 

I found my passion for Student Affairs and Higher Education working with TRiO Programs for nearly 8 years. TRiO Programs serve first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students. I have obtained my M.Ed. and have experience in Academic Advising and Recruitment. 

As a proud member of the youth and education focused Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, I advocate for student success. It is my purpose to inspire, guide, and support students who are pursuing higher education. I understand the barriers that deter students from pursuing their academic goals and I strive to bridge those gaps.

As an Admissions Advisor, I serve New Freshmen Students who attend high school in the Milwaukee Area. I look forward to building and maintaining relationships with local high schools and I am elated to interact with students during such an exciting phase of life.

Please do not hesitate to connect with me. I look forward to answering your questions and supporting you as you build Panther Pride!
