About Me:

I am a transfer student from Southwestern Oregon Community College.  I am a proud parent of two amazing children, Alivia and Hendrix.  I am working towards a fulfilling career as a counselor in the field of mental health and addictions recovery.  I joined ASSOU to represent those of us who identify as non-traditional students, students involved in our military affairs, and students involved in our Higher Education Center satellite campus in Medford.  I enjoy engaging in the community here at SOU.  I currently work as a Raider Ambassador, the CORE Program Assistant, Student Assistant for the Psychology Department.  I have also worked on New Student Orientation and the Raider Welcome Team.

I enjoy spending my free time running on the amazing trails here in Ashland and participating in many of the local running events.
