Tell us a little about yourself…
I have been in higher education my entire career and love working with students! I originally came to UNO as a graduate teaching assistant while getting my Master of Arts in Communication Studies and have been here ever since. Both of my parents were transfer, nontraditional students and their stories have fueled my passion for working with transfer students to make the admissions process as easy as possible. Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my family. I’m also a huge nerd! I love comic books, science fiction, and video games; especially ones with strong female characters.
What is your favorite thing about UNO?
How interdisciplinary this campus is. There are so many different things you can study at UNO! But what’s most important about that, to me, is that the faculty and staff really encourage you to explore multiple areas of interest and see how they interact and relate to one another. You’re going to have a major anywhere you go to college, but at UNO there’s a great emphasis on seeing how you can add concentrations, minors, internships, etc. to help you merge your passions. That’s really cool and fun to be a part of!
What do you like to do most in Omaha?
Eat! Although, honestly, that’s my favorite thing to do anywhere. Omaha has hundreds of amazing restaurants ranging from small local shacks, to national chains, to restaurants ran by award-winning chefs. Additionally, we have great farmers markets and regional food markets that allow me to cook recipes from around the world, even in the middle of the U.S.
What piece of advice do you offer to students going through the college search process?
Believe in yourself! Too often students don’t apply for a scholarship or give up on the admissions process. Your admissions representatives are here to help you and guide you through the process to reach your goals.
