1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
After graduating from GVSU I moved to Boston to pursue graduate school at Northeastern University. I obtained my M.S. in College Student Development & Counseling in 2017 and then began working at Berklee College of Music in Campus Life for 4 years. I have since recently relocated back to Michigan and started at position at the University of Michigan in the University Career Center as a Career Coach. It's been my passion to work with college students and help people realize their potential, so I've been fortunate to do that at two amazing institutions thus far in my career.
2. Share a favorite Grand Valley memory.
My favorite GVSU memory was Lavender Graduation. It was amazing to be in community with so many peers I had learned from throughout my time at GVSU and to celebrate faculty and staff who uplifted and supported us.
3. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Your career is what you do, not who you are. For a while, I had always felt like I was never passionate enough or willing to give enough to my career. Now I am confident in the fact that I can make a positive impact every day, and then go home and enjoy my hobbies and connections outside of work has helped give me the balance I was looking for.
4. List three words you would use to describe your Grand
Greek Life, Community, Exploration
5. What difference would you like to make in the world?
I want to help redefine what professionalism is. To include voices, narratives, and representation in the professional world that are genuine and authentic, and show others that they belong and are valued.
