Where is your hometown? 
San Marcos, TX

What was your major(s)/degree(s) and where did you go to school?
I graduated from Texas State University in May 2015 with a major in Communication Studies and a minor in Business Administration

Why did you decide to pursue a career in higher education?
As a student, I worked as an office assistant for the campus recreation. I enjoyed working with students and in a university setting and decided to pursue a career in higher education. Academic advising was not my original career choice, but after researching the role of an academic advisor and reflecting back on my undergraduate experience, I knew this career would be a perfect choice! As an academic advisor, I plan to provide full guidance and support to students in order to help them meet their academic, personal, and career goals.

What is your favorite part of working for Texas State University?
Hands down, I love the community. It’s always exciting meeting unique individuals, and being a local; I love answering any questions about things to do and places to visit.

Tell us a random fact about yourself:
I have a Labrador retriever named Jack and have accepted the fact that all of my belongings will have some amount of fur on them. I enjoy taking him outdoors, which his favorite moments are when we go to the river.
