"I grew up surrounded by cultural diversity. With more than 125 countries represented, Purdue offers a cultural experience that is difficult to match, and that diversity extends into the community."

My family came to West Lafayette when I was just three years old, and with the exception of a short stint in Indianapolis, I’ve lived here ever since. Growing up in Greater Lafayette and near Purdue University’s campus has meant many things to me, and has provided opportunities and connections I know I wouldn’t find in any other Midwestern city. I grew up surrounded by cultural diversity. With more than 125 countries represented, Purdue offers a cultural experience that is difficult to match, and that diversity extends into the community. I also grew up immersed in the excitement and energy of a Big Ten University, with endless opportunities to attend sporting events, camps and clubs. I’ve always appreciated how living here means experiencing the liveliness of a big city, while being only a few miles from the quiet of the country. Throughout Greater Lafayette, there is a sense of pride and community which makes this a wonderful place to work, live and raise a family.

Welcome to Purdue! I’m thrilled to be a part of this Office and have the opportunity to meet and work with such talented spouses and partners of faculty members. I am a Purdue graduate with a degree in Organizational Leadership and Supervision from the College of Technology. Since graduating from Purdue, I have worked as a recruiter for a technical staffing agency, as well as in higher education admissions. I’m excited to bring my experiences and love of the Lafayette area into my work here at Purdue.
