Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I came to Columbus to attend The Ohio State University. As a first-generation college student and graduate, I felt incredibly uncertain and confused about how to turn my major into a career after college (yet here I am as a Career Coach!). I found my way into the central Ohio Non-profit sector due to my love of service and volunteerism. The skills I gained while working for a variety of nonprofit organizations, including The Childhood League Center and The United Way of Central Ohio, led me to The Hill in 2016.
Empowering people to build confidence, skills, and the courage to design the lives they want to lead has been a core part of my life and career. As the Director of Career Communities and Coaching, I have the privilege of working with a team of really smart and talented people, developing innovative approaches to career exploration and preparation that meets the needs of today’s college student and the ever-changing landscape of today’s workforce. While I’m a generalist, coaching students on all career-related topics, I have a great interest in helping students discover and identify their strengths and build their career confidence.
When not at Denison, you can find me leading my daughter’s Girl Scout Troop, cheering on all Cleveland Teams and the Ohio State Buckeyes, doing anything and everything creative (I can do amazing things with a glue gun), reading mystery books, decorating cookies, and listening to 90’s grunge music.
