Background: I earned a BAA in Teaching French & Spanish with a minor in Dance from UMD, an MS in Counseling from Creighton University, and an EdD in Higher Education from Concordia University-Portland. My research project was Cultural Brokering: Insights to College Career Counselors from Colleagues in Diversity Offices and I enjoy applying these insights to my work. My work experience has entailed working with students, ages middle school through college, with emphasis on teaching, counseling, and inclusive practices.
Areas of Expertise: I enjoy connecting with students on Resumes, Cover Letters, Personal Statements, Diversity Statements, LinkedIn Profile Development, Mock Interviews, Strong Interest Inventory, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, CliftonStrengths, Major & Career Exploration, Job & Internship Search, Job Search for International Students, Job Search for Child Welfare Scholars, Equity & Diversity in Careers, and more.
Interests: In my spare time, I have traveled to 14 countries and 43 states of the US, coach my kids' sports teams, spend time outdoors, and enjoy doing creative projects.
