I came to Utah as a student and fell in love with the area, people, and University of Utah. After careers in office management, event planning, and youth ministry, I focused on advising at the U and have been doing so for fifteen+ years, working in the College of Social and Behavioral Science, Humanities, and Health. I presently serve as Assistant Dean for Students in the College of Health and direct the Sorenson Legacy Foundation Center for Student Success. I am also nearing completion of an EdD in Educational Leadership and Policy.
