“People may not always need a coach, but I believe they do deserve a coach.” – Patrick Williams

I support students in locating, unlocking, and opening the doors to their career development, particularly when they begin reflecting on the questions above.

I serve undergraduates in the Division of Natural Sciences & Mathematics, and as liaison to undergraduate international students, at the University of Denver. My previous experience has been in academic advising, pre-health advising with a focus on Nursing students, experiential education, program development, and curriculum design. I want students to feel comfortable sharing their dreams and goals with me, and to come away from Career & Professional Development with a place to start. I enjoy getting to know each of my students and tailoring my advising approach to their needs and concerns. I am also passionate about empowering women to advocate for themselves and support one another in their career development.

My favorite ways to support student success include career exploration, interview coaching, assisting students in building connections with others, and teaching at the university level.
