B.A., Communication from Purdue University.  Boiler Up!


  • Research assistant in Purdue's Communication department
  • Student receptionist in the Biomedical Engineering office for 2 years
  • Post-graduation, worked in the Statistics and Chemical Engineering Graduate Offices.  I love the university environment!

Advice for the Future Boilermaker:

Purdue is an amazing placed filled with SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES! Don’t be overwhelmed, take time to find out what makes you tick and embrace your own personal brand of uniqueness! Explore campus, be nosy, and participate in the numerous boilermaker traditions (fountain run, anyone?). 

Ask questions! Your professors have a passion for their subject, take advantage of having the ear of an expert in the field. Be kind, understanding of differences and learn from your peers. BE ACTIVE! Attend at least one football game, one basketball game, one play or show or performance. Don’t walk under the bell tower!

Fun Facts:

I am a HUGE animal lover, to the extent that I am constantly rescuing spiders and relocating them outdoors (don’t step on the little guys!). In my free time, I love to paint, draw and try anything artistic (metalwork, mosaics, stained glass, etc.). 

I am definitely a sci-fi junkie, and I am awfully proud that I once creepily followed a disguised George Lucas around a Star Wars convention. That being said, I’ve also seen every episode of Star Trek ever made…. I adore all doggies, especially my bulldog, Brain (Mr. Brain, if he is feeling classy). I am happiest outdoors and love to hike and go camping!
