About me

I am an alumna of the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI (now IU Indianapolis) where I studied health services management and am an alumna of my sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha. For five years after graduation, I worked in different areas of health care, including being a case manager for individuals with HIV and the office coordinator at a primary/behavioral health care center.

I grew up in a small town in Indiana where I currently reside with my husband and two cats, Olive and Kovu (fun fact: we got married two weeks after our college graduation, which was amazing, but talk about stressful!). I love cuddling up with a good book, playing video games, and spending time with friends and family. I LOVE reality TV and have no shame watching The Bachelor franchise weekly with my two best friends. I am a pop culture fanatic, so yes, I probably always know what is happening with celebrities. . . . it is a problem.

Why I chose IU Indianapolis

For a while, I felt like I was not where I needed to be in my career choice. I knew I loved working in student affairs and was not enjoying health care like I thought I would. Being a student at what was formerly IUPUI, I knew getting back to the campus I knew and loved would be the best choice for me. It was tough realizing that what I went to school for was not for me, but I am glad I decided to go for what I love doing. I enjoy being on a diverse, urban campus where I can grow more as a person. IU Indianapolis offers just that.
