I was born right here in D.C., so I'm happy to be back! Growing up in a tiny, rural town in Virginia definitely taught me a lot about perspective, but I've always known that the city is where I need to be. I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2015 with a major in American Studies and a minor in Foreign Affairs. That following fall, I began working in UVA's Office of Admission and that's where I discovered my passion for college access. 

Working with students from underrepresented backgrounds and disadvantaged communities has been so rewarding in so many ways. I am honored that I have the opportunity to do this work at GW. When I am not in the office, you can find me eating mac and cheese, doing yoga, or laughing uncontrollably at something that probably wasn't even that funny.
