Hi, I’m Jade, the Graduate Education Program Specialist. I am originally from the Kalamazoo area, but love Grand Rapids and all it has to offer! I received my BA in Elementary Education/English-Language Arts and had the opportunity to teach in West Michigan for six years. I’m happy to be back at my alma mater as I work toward a master's degree as part of the College Student Affairs Leadership (CSAL) program.

In my spare time, I love being outdoors, visiting with family and friends, cooking, crafting, and exploring the lakeshore with my husband and our Golden Retriever, Montana. I cherished my time at Grand Valley, and hope to help you find your way here, as well. 

  • B.A., Grand Valley State University
