Hey everyone! My name is Baden (pronounced Bay-den). On my birth certificate actually my parents first put the “y” in the name and then decided to cross it out. I am named after the founder of the Boy Scouts program Baden Powell. I’m from Spokane, Washington and did my master’s at Gonzaga University (Go Zags!). I worked in student affairs at Gonzaga for a little bit then worked at the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk!) for four years. Before my higher education work, I worked with the Taco Time fast food franchise. I love working with students and helping you all succeed! I’m happy to talk anytime and help you navigate resources or success strategies. Thanks!

I was born in Las Vegas, NV and went to high school in Mesquite, NV. I am also a first generation college student. I went to Reno, NV for both my bachelor and master degree where I transitioned from pursuing mechanical engineering to working in higher education helping students learn and succeed in their pursuit of their education. I enjoy interacting with students and helping them find paths to success. A fun quirk about me is I am colorblind and my family found out when I was in the first grade. My first grade teacher had noticed because her husband was also color blind. Who knows how long I would have lived without knowing I had a hard time with shades of color!
