As an educator and writer, I have had the opportunity to work in college admissions, first-year transition programs, and career services, as well as in print journalism, public radio, and state government communications. I came to Penn State in 2019 to serve as a graduate assistant with Adult Learner Programs and Services before moving to academic advising with the College of the Liberal Arts in the summer of 2021. 

On a more personal note, I grew up on a dairy farm in rural Michigan. I enjoy hiking, baking, reading, writing, spending time with my family, and hanging out with my two cats, Merry and Pippin.
