I am a proud Colorado native, growing up in Bronco Country (Denver, CO). After 18 amazing years I left the Rocky Mountains and took my talents to the Midwest where I started my career at my alma mater, Knox College in 2015. When offered the opportunity to join the USC admission team I did not hesitate to come out to Los Angeles as fast as I could. I enjoy traveling to new places, staying active, going to the movies, cooking, and spending quality time with my family and friends.

Why USC? 
Coming from a liberal arts institution, I have quickly found that USC offers the exact same intimate experience to their amazing students while presenting them with great opportunities and virtually unlimited resources. USC is a place where you will not only find your fit within the University, but you will be surrounded by people you will aspire to be. This will bring out the best in anybody, and I am proud to represent the Trojan Family!
