I am excited about coming to Wilson Hall as RHD. I have been a part of the
Office of Residence Life for the past 13 years as Resident Assistant, Graduate
Hall Director, and full-time Hall Director. I have worked in Gillenwater,
Allen, and Gabaldon, and for the last eight years I have been the RHD for Pine
Ridge. This will be the first time I have worked with freshmen students and I
am looking forward to this experience. I enjoy working with students and helping
them to grow and develop into bright adults. I expect this to be an exciting
