“I am honored to be here on the ancestral homeland of the Shoshone and Bannock people working to create and sustain a supportive, innovative, and equitable experience for all Boise State University students. I walk every day with gratitude to the family, friends, and mentors who have impacted my pathway and appreciate each the communities I have been invited to be part of.”
Education & Experience
I am privileged to have spent my career in service to students across a number of functional areas. My career in student affairs began in residence life, work I maintain a strong affinity for, and have embraced each new responsibility as an opportunity to actively contribute to a culture of student success. I am also passionate about the arts and served three terms as president of the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council in Juneau, Alaska. I hold a bachelors degree and a masters of education from the University of South Carolina and a doctorate in education from Oregon State University in adult and higher education leadership. My doctoral research focused on intersecting dimensions of rural identity and postsecondary outcomes with a focus on rural Alaskan Native college students.
My functional areas include Housing and Residence Life, Student Equity, Student Involvement and Leadership, New Student Programs, and Campus Recreation. I am always excited to learn about the experiences of students and seek to be an advocate in removing barriers to student success wherever they may be found.
