I am from Chicago, IL and received my undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt University in English and Secondary Education. I moved to Colorado to teach high school English, and have spent these last six years teaching while enjoying all the hiking, snowboarding, and camping that Colorado has to offer. In 2021 I began a master’s program at DU in higher education, and I loved the professors and campus environment so much that I wanted to work for the school. My advice for prospective students is to not hesitate to reach out for help, whether that’s your admissions counselor, a teacher, a high school college counselor, a friend, a family member, etc. We are in this process together!
