Why I Enjoy Advising: I discovered a passion for student services in higher education while working for the Southwest Applied Technology College as the Student Success Counselor. Never before did I have a position where I could do so much good for so many people.

Why I Love SUU: As a student at SUU I fell in love with the culture and passion for higher education. I enjoy Cedar City and have ties to the area. If I were given and option of fifty different universities to work for I would pick SUU every time.

What I Can Do For You: I take a holistic approach to student success and completion by factoring in a student’s personal, social, financial, emotional, developmental and cultural differences when advising each student.
