I am a Peer Advisor at The University of Kansas Undergraduate Advising Center. I help advise incoming students and drop-in students here, and you might also see me during Orientation Season!

I am a Mathematics major with a passion for numbers. After college, I hope to teach high school Calculus. The limit for my passion for mathematics does not exist! In the long run I hope to pursue my dream of working at a Multicultural Resource Center at the College level.

I absolutely love to bake and I have a newfound love for hammocking (if you want some cool spots for hammocking, or have any suggestions, let me know! Swimming is my favorite sport: I have been swimming for 10 years now. As for music, my other passion, I love to sing and have been a part of two choirs at KU. Although my major is serious, I'm far from that; I love sharing a laugh and I love to make people smile! I'm definitely an extrovert, so if you're every looking for a smile and someone to chat with, come to our office and say hello!

"What's your favorite thing about KU?"

I absolutely love KU Men's Basketball. Rock Chalk!
