My K-State Story:
I have been a K-State fan my entire life so making the decision to attend to K-State was an easy decision for me after I graduated from high school. Upon arriving to K-State in the Fall of 2008 I immediately found myself involved in a number of campus organization including Greek Life, the Interfraternity Council, and intramural sports. I was able to experience first-hand the exciting and welcoming community that K-State has to offer and I look forward to the opportunity to of being able to share this with future K-Staters, as well!

My Work:
When I was an undergraduate student at K-State I loved to share my enthusiasm for K-State with others and now I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to get to do so on a daily basis as an integral part of my career! K-State has been a home-away-from-home to me for many years and I am excited to be able to carry on the K-State legacy by helping new students find their place within the K-State family.

My Work:

I decided to join the International Admissions and Recruiting team in order to help all the international students make them feel at home since I know what is like to be away from home.
