Office: SCNC 154E

Having graduated from our undergraduate program in 2014, I am passionate about helping students navigate their way through their chemistry degree with the goal of ensuring all students have the same great experience that I had.  I have worked in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for over 10 years starting as a student employee in the stockroom. Upon graduation I moved into a Lab Services Coordinator position, then the Laboratory Manager, and most recently took over as the Student Support Manager in 2020.

Getting to work with students and helping them to succeed at Boise State is why I love this job.  With a student-focused mission, our department works hard to form a community around our chemistry majors.  We do this through hands-on advising, saving seats in our chemistry courses for our majors, offering chemistry specific scholarships and fellowships, career relevant job opportunities, and at least one year of an immersive research experience in a faculty members laboratory. By the time you graduate from our program, all our staff and faculty will have personally come to know you, shared important educational experience with you, and be excited to celebrate your accomplishments.  We are here for you, so please email any questions to me at   I look forward to working with you during your time at Boise State!
