About Me

I am from Kansas City, MO. In 2013, I graduated from Newman University in Wichita, KS with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Communications. As a student, I was an active member of numerous extracurricular organizations. I also served as the university’s very first mascot, Johnny Jet, an aviation pilot. My passion for higher education came from being a mentor for a nonprofit organization in Kansas City called 20/20 Leadership. I began my admissions career in 2013 at Newman University as a freshman admissions counselor. 

My advice for students in the college search process is to find your fit. Make sure the university has your major, ask questions and take a campus tour so you can get a good feeling for the place. It could be your home for the next four years!
