Personal Profile

2 years of school, a life long of learning


Continuing my education was always an intention of mine. I started my graduate degree, pursuing the MA in Postsecondary Educational Leadership with a Specialization in Student Affairs because I knew I was passionate about the impact that professionals can have on students. I wanted to support student development in any way that I could.

Now, I know that my graduate program has developed the important theoretical foundations that can guide my practice. Further, with a spirit of inquiry, imparted by my faculty mentor and wise professors, I know that the learning never ends. I know that while the formal education may concludes in May of 2016, I will always continue to learn.
