How did you discover Western?
I discovered Western through recruitment to the Western Women’s Basketball team and attended a visit. When I came, I fell in love with the community, campus, and culture that was being built at Western.
What most excites you about your field?
The students that I will be overseeing in Ute Hall are the most exciting part of my job. I remember being a freshman and being nervous to be away from home and meeting new people. I wanted to be a reason of why I wanted to stay at Western five years ago for incoming students. The experience of trying new things, getting out of your comfort zone, and creating your own self is what I want to be apart of for other students.
What is your favorite thing about the Gunnison Valley?
My favorite thing about the Gunnison Valley are the students and community as everyone is welcoming and it is truly a home away from home.
