    I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies with a Certificate of Leadership and Human Relations from Boise State University in 2019.  During my time as a Multidisciplinary Studies student, I spent several semesters as an advising intern and later worked on the Boise State X team. As a lifelong nontraditional student myself, I understand how overwhelming it can be to juggle school and life.  This, coupled with a passion for learning about students as individuals and helping them achieve their unique goals, is what makes academic advising a natural fit for me. I am humbled everyday by the remarkable people I work with.

    I earned two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Montana and a Master of Science in International and European Politics from the University of Edinburgh. Since graduating, I have worked in admissions at the University of Montana and as a self-reliance specialist for the State of Idaho. I believe in the value of a college education, and I look forward to collaborating with you so that you can reach your educational goals. When not behind my desk, you will find me drinking far too much coffee, hiking with my dogs, and hitting the gym.

    Welcome to Boise State! I grew up in a small Michigan farm town. I went to Saginaw Valley State University where I was able to obtain my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication with a minor in Music Performance. The start of my college career was a bit rocky but I had a staff member there coach me in the right direction. I ended up becoming a Resident Assistant and took interest in Student Affairs/Higher Education. I followed that path and ended up getting my Masters’s degree from Eastern Michigan University. I am an amputee and play for the National Standing Amputee Hockey team. I have two cats named Zelda and Tybalt. My wife and I like to take our son out for hikes in the mountains when we get free time.

    As your advisor, my goal is to support you as you pursue your degree and help you access the many resources and supports the University has to ensure your success.  I enjoy seeing students grow and change as they journey through their education.  I completed two degrees as a full time working parent, and I understand the balance it takes to juggle work, school, family and life. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, nature, spending time with my family, and my dogs.

    Advising Manager

    I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communication (2015) and a Masters in Educational Leadership (2019) from Boise State University. Prior to working for Boise State, I served 4 years in the United States Navy as an AD2(AW) at NAS Whidbey Island, WA. I have been with Boise State University since 2015 and have a background in advising and financial aid. As a non-traditional student myself (hello, deployment homework), I understand how it challenging it can be for a non-traditional student but also how rewarding it can be. I am a firm believer in self-care and enjoy being an advocate for students to help them reach their goals. When not in the office, you can find me in the foothills with my dogs (Ellie & Cooper) and my partner, Andy.
