    About Me
    I’m an East Coast native (NJ/PA) with West Coast roots (WA/OR). I came to UF with 11 years of admissions experience, including from the University of Oregon and the University of Washington. I’m a poet and spoken word artist, first-generation college graduate, and an authentic advisor who values equity and inclusion. When I’m not helping future Gators, you can find me stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking or feeding my Wawa addiction. Fun fact: I went skydiving on my twenty-first birthday!

    Favorite Campus Location

    I love UF’s Butterfly Rainforest, at the Florida Museum of Natural History. It’s a relaxing paradise and an amazing campus gem that serves as home to beautiful tropical plants, wonderful waterfalls and over 1,000 butterflies.

    Favorite UF Fun Fact
    Passionate UF alumni reside in all 50 states and 135 countries; The Gator Nation is everywhere. Many students are on track to be the first in their families to graduate from college, and UF’s dedicated First Generation Student Success office is committed to celebrating and supporting first-gen scholars. Shout out to change-makers!

    Admissions Advice
    Believe in yourself. Never let anyone convince you that you’re not worthy or not enough; you are capable of success in college. Adversity and "imposter syndrome" are real, and we are our own harshest critics. Don’t let anyone (especially you) stop you from applying to college or pursuing your dream, no matter the path or the time it takes. Work hard, be resilient, and believe. When you apply, tell your story and be real. Authenticity matters.

    For Students
