As the University of Kansas Peace Corps Campus Recruiter I am available to meet with students and community members to discuss all things Peace Corps. From sharing pointers on the application process, providing general Peace Corps information, discussing the vast job positions available for those looking to gain hands on experience, to describing what a life changing experience this can be has become a great passion of mine! I served as a volunteer in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal as a Food Security Specialist implementing projects and programs relating to agriculture and health from 2012-2014!

Apart from my work at KU, I am a full-time graduate student working on a Masters in Public Administration: Nonprofit Management at UMKC on a Peace Corps Paul D. Coverdell Fellowship.

Having been bitten by the travel bug I have been all over the world and am quickly working my way to becoming a global citizen! These places include Nepal, China, India, Thailand, Brazil, Ecuador, South Africa, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy. Have a country I need to add to my list? Let me know!

When I have down time I enjoy playing with my rottie pup, Everest, riding my horse, Remy, being outdoors, watching movies, spending time with friends and family, and the list could go on!
