What pronouns do you use? She/Her


I am a senior psychology major with a minor in anthropology from Richmond, Virginia. I am currently a teaching and research assistant within both the anthropology and psychology departments. Last semester, I participated in a X-Labs course centered around the changing nature of higher education and a further need for accessibility and individualization, which led me to the Adult Degree Program. I hope to use my time as an Adult Degree Program intern to help students navigate their education.

Q: What do you love most about JMU?

A: "I love the sense of community and opportunities for engagement that I have found at James Madison University."

Q: Where do you see yourself professionally in 5 years?

A: "In 5 years, I hope to be a licensed school counselor practicing in the state of Virginia."

Q: What is most exciting to you about working with SPCE?

A: "I am excited to be working with the School of Professional and Continuing Education because I believe that higher education can often lack accessibility, and this program gives adult learners more power over their education."

Q: What are your hobbies?

A: "In my free time, I enjoy doing art and volunteering."
