Bachelor of Arts
Oak Harbor, OH
During my time at BW, I was part of the Honors Program, a member of the football team, Mid-Night Madness, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Dance Marathon, Alternative Spring Break programs, HPGB, and many other student organizations. Outside of organizations, I worked in the Office of Admission, food service/The Colony Room, and served as an Orientation leader.
After graduation, I went on to graduate school at Colorado State University to earn my Master's of Science in Student Affairs in Higher Education. During my time there, I worked in Residence Life, Greek Life, and did assessment work for the Division of Student Affairs.
Currently, I live in Buffalo, New York and work for a company that assists colleges and universities with assessment, strategic planning, and managing involvement. I serve as the Assistant Director of Assessment Programs, acting as an Assessment Consultant for 35+ institutions across North America.
