I am an Advising professional with over 17 years of experience dedicated to assisting students with reaching for and finding their success. In my personal life, I am a massive fan of the transformative properties of travel. One of the things I love to do most is explore new cultures while visiting new and exciting places. While I am a transplant to the Gainesville area, we have grown to love our new hometown. Stop and say hello if you see me out and about around Gainesville.
