Background

I began my time here at UNH fresh out of graduate school in July 2017 as the Manager of the Woodside Apartments on campus. After four wonderful and unique years working with that community, I transitioned into the Assistant Director role in June 2021. My journey in student affairs began as an undergraduate student at my alma mater in Wisconsin, where I gained leadership experience in residence life, student activities and leadership, and multicultural student success. Seeking a new adventure, I took my graduate studies to the East Coast, joined the UMass Lowell community in 2015, and then found my way here.

Why I love working at UNH

UNH provides endless opportunity to learn new things and grow personally and professionally! Our community is made up of some of the most interesting people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working alongside. Specifically working for the Housing department, I get to know and interact with so many nooks and crannies on this campus and beyond. Another one of the things I love most about my work here is the ever-changing nature of the job. Not one of my number of years here at UNH has been the same and I love working with a team to overcome challenges – and there’s been plenty of those! Whether it be with students or colleagues, one of my passions is personal growth and development and connecting people to opportunities that cultivate that growth, and I’m given the opportunity to do that on a daily basis in the work I do.

Who I Am

When I’m not working with my wonderful colleagues, I love connecting with family and friends near and far, reading a good book in my hammock, watching documentaries (big lover of nature and true crime) and playing games, video and board alike. Send recommendations my way! I will choose the lake over the ocean any day and find a lot of peace relaxing in the outdoors, but I won’t say no to an adventurous weekend in Boston. That’s one of my favorite things about living in this area – having access to so many different kinds of environments and communities to explore! While I love my East Coast life, I’m a cheesehead to the core! A few times a year I get shipments of cheese and other treats from my home state of Wisconsin (yes, it is that big of a deal!) and I’ll never be a New England sports fan.

A quirky thing about me is my nerd-like love for National Parks – Yellowstone in particular! I visited Yellowstone twice during my undergrad career and absolutely fell in love with the complex ecosystem and incredible breadth of wildlife that call Yellowstone home. One of my personal goals is to own a camper or RV of sorts and take a cross-country tip and hit as many parks as possible!
