My road in life took a while to figure out.
Graduated from college without a clear plan, so I moved home to Montana and got a job in admissions.
I was able to travel extensively as part of my first job, learning about culture and access.
Got recruited to work at my alma mater & live in one of the greatest cities, San Francisco.
In San Francisco, I developed one of the greatest professional networks and continued to travel.
Putting in hard work allowed me to advance further in the university and work on special projects.
Willing to be a problem solver and work on projects allowed me to gain many broad experiences.
People don't always understand what I do, even though I've done it for almost 15 years.
Keep following my journey

The Noise I Shed

From Friends:

"Admission and marketing at a university means you are a cheerleader (nothing wrong with that), but admissions and the work we do is built out to promote access to educational opportunities to students that will change their life trajectory!"
