Admissions Counselor



    Hello! I grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico and Chattanooga, TN- so if you need recommendations for the best green Chile or an awesome swimming hole, I’m your gal! Colorado has been home now for 5 years, so it doesn’t get better than a fall drive through the Rocky Mountains. I was a first-generation student and have my undergraduate degree in Sociology and Psychology from CSU. I enjoy the everyday social aspects of being a human and so I particularly enjoy talking with students about what they see themselves achieving. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, attending concerts and eating good food. I am so excited to be here. Go BEARS!
