For more than ten years, I have enjoyed working for Kansas State University in various capacities. I especially enjoy encountering students and helping them to become acclimated to the college environment. In particular, it brings me pleasure to help others expand their perceptions of the world in which they live and to enhance their critical thinking. It is important that I aid students as they develop skills in written communication, critical analysis, diversity and cultural awareness. More than anything, my goal is to empower students to become highly engaged, empathetic, and ambitious individuals who represent themselves and Kansas State University well.
