What do you like most about your job?
I enjoy working in multiple positions with Transition & Engagement, for it offers me the opportunity to make connections with diverse individuals across campus.
Do you have any nicknames?

Why did you choose Texas Tech?
As a child, I was constantly traveling to Texas Tech to visit my sister, who also went to school here. I fell in love with the family atmosphere of inclusiveness and tradition.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I can say the alphabet backwards. It is a quirky trick to surprise people with that my grandfather taught me as a kid.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
If I could have any superpower, I would want the ability to read minds.
