About me

I was born and raised in southern California. I decided to make the move out to Colorado once I saw the beautiful mountains surrounding CMU! I started my undergraduate degree in 2015 and graduated with a Mass Communication degree in the fall of 2019. As a student at CMU I was involved in the Associated Student Government, Residence Life and Student Life. I had a wonderful experience and became a strong leader within the CMU community. I love working with students and am excited to be a part of their process when deciding on something as exciting as where they will be furthering their education. 

Favorite thing about Grand Junction

Grand Junction is the best of both worlds ⁠— a small town with the best parts of a big city. You are surrounded by some of the best hiking trails and camping spots as well as amazing food options. My personal favorite is a local spot located downtown, Cafe Sol. They have the best coffee and breakfast in town. My favorite seasons are summer and fall — you will never run out of things to do! From the Downtown Farmers' Market, Food Truck Fridays and drive-in movie theaters, you will not have a dull day — I promise!
