As a proud Las Vegas native, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Nevada State College. It was while I was a student at Nevada State College that I found my passion for higher education and working with students. From there I continued to graduate school completing a master’s degree from Kansas State University in Academic Advising. I have worked in higher education for over ten years. Prior to becoming an academic advisor, I worked as a college career advisor and instructor teaching academic and career success courses. As a first generation and non-traditional student I have learned from my own personal experiences and strive to assist students with their journey to accomplishing their academic and professional goals.
