Personal

I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH where I currently
reside. I enjoy shopping, singing, and spending time with family and friends.

Academic

I am the Academic Specialist for the College of Informatics.

My duties include assisting with purchase requisitions, reserving rooms, posting class cancellations, and being the first contact for students, faculty, and visitors needing assistance with a variety of requests. 

I earned my bachelor’s degree from Wright State University in Psychology. I also worked at WSU in advising, admissions, and assisted with orientation and first-year programs. Being in an academic environment is what led me to where I am now. NKU possesses a close sense of community and I am happy to be a part of such a diverse college within the university.
