About Me

I was born and raised in a small town in eastern Wyoming. After high school, I attended community college in my hometown to play volleyball and then transferred to the University of Wyoming where I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in English in 2018. Following graduation, I chose to attend law school, but after a semester, decided a life of law was not for me! Working with college students is a passion of mine, and I am so excited to help transfer students find their place here at CMU.

Favorite things about Grand Junction

There are so many opportunities to find your own adventure here in Grand Junction! I love waking up early in the morning and heading out on one of the hundreds of hiking trails in the area. I am also an avid sports fan, and one of my favorite hobbies is cheering on the Grand Junction Rockies in the same stadium that hosts the Junior College World Series every spring. If you are like me and love a good patio dining experience, you have to check out the Ale House right north of campus!
