I’m a self-identified scholar, game-enthusiast, and casual fan of sports who is dedicated to innovative approaches to student learning and development through technology, social media, design, and social justice. I have been working professionally in higher education and student affairs, focusing in residential education, honors programs, academic advising, and assessment.
Presently fulfilling the role of Assistant Director & Academic Advisor for the University Honors Program (@ucunivhonors) at the University of Cincinnati (#HottestCollegeInAmerica), I advise over 200 College of Engineering and Applied Science honors students while creating and coordinating the office’s social media strategies, developing relationships with graduate schools like Indiana’s Kelley School of Business and external partners such as Procter & Gamble, and also generating increased alumni involvement. I also have extensive experience implementing campus-wide benchmark assessments and producing student-staff selection, training, and performance assessments.
I received my Master of Arts in Educational Studies and Bachelor of Arts in English Literature magna cum laude with Distinguished Honors while also receiving certificates in Honors Leadership and Creative Writing: Fiction, both from the University of Cincinnati. In the next five years, I plan to pursue my PhD in the field of technology and student learning.
