A first generation college student, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Political Science and History in December 2005 from the University of Arizona. I was born and raised in Omak, Washington, where I met and married my high school sweetheart, Chad. We love the UA and the culture and enjoy living in Tucson with our cat and dog. Before coming to the UA, I worked as a Deputy Prosecutor for the Colville Confederated Tribes in Washington and moved back to Tucson in 2007 to work for the UA College of Medicine’s Office of Outreach & Multicultural Affairs. I love my job as an Academic Advisor and like to think I am very enthusiastic about assisting all Psychology majors and minors be as successful as possible! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Originally from Grand Junction, Colorado, I moved to Tucson in August of 2004 to attend The University of Arizona. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Family Studies and Human Development, with a minor in Psychology in August of 2009. I have been a member of the Psychology Advising team since January of 2005 where I started as an Office Assistant and am currently Academic Advisor to students with last names Q-Z. I have also worked in the Office of Early Academic Outreach, with the College Academy for Parents as a Camp Leader. I enjoy the role of Academic Advisor greatly but my true passion is spending time with my twin daughters, born in February 2009, and teaching them new things. I love the U of A and am prepared and excited to assist you in getting the most out of your college experience.

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I moved down to Tucson when I started my undergraduate degree at the University of Arizona.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and moved to Arizona six years ago. I have been pursuing a Political Science degree at the University of Arizona since the Fall of 2010. In my spare time I enjoy reading novels, watching movies and basketball. I began my job as a student worker in the Department of Psychology during the Spring of 2011. I look forward to the many exciting years ahead as a Wildcat at the University of Arizona!
