A little about me...

I currently live in San Diego and love spending time with family, friends, and of course my puppy! I am a massive sports buff and love all things stats and knowledge about all sports around the world. I have a passion for helping people, geography, and traveling—I cannot wait until our
world is in a safer place so I can continue to get out there and explore the world!

Advice for First-Year Students

This is a crazy time but if you stick with your Success Coaches, friends, and family, we can get
through this and can help prepare you for the college experience you were expecting! Get yourself organized, prepared, meet people, get out of your comfort bubble, and by the time you graduate you will feel confident as you head into the 'real world'.
