I came to Southern Utah University to run track and get an education. However, when I was a recently graduated high school student I didn't focus on the financial aspects like I should have until later in my academic career. I didn’t know very much about my finances or what it took to make informed financial decisions. I was a first-generation, low-income student not knowing what to expect, and in my time here I have been able to grow into the resource that I wish I had as an incoming student.

I wholeheartedly understand the struggles that families experience financially, and I know that finances can be a deal-breaker when considering your education. I have been working in Financial Aid for nine years, and I have enjoyed every second of it! Helping families to understand potential obstacles on their academic journey and developing ways to overcome them is what I take pride in. I look forward to helping you understand your financial options on your path to success!
