Student Success Assistant

What do you like about working with engineering students?
The students in the College of Engineering are amazing. It's so fun to see each of them navigating U-M in their own special way, solving problems, making decisions, and becoming more independent as time goes on.

What was your major in college, and why?
Double Major in History & Geography. In my history courses I learned to challenge my assumptions, understand change, and appreciate different perspectives. Geography taught me see the big picture and observe the landscape around me through a different lens. Also, maps are cool.

What is your best piece of advice for first year students?
Its okay to not know all of the answers. Ask questions, get involved, step outside of your "bubble" or comfort zone, there is no better way to grow.

What do you spend time on outside of your work?
Outside of work I like to go to Michigan Athletics events (especially gymnastics)!
