What do you enjoy most about working with NAU students?

NAU's students are particularly great to work with because our students are excited to be here and fully get immersed, not just into the University culture, but Flagstaff culture as well. It makes for a great community!

Why should students take advantage of the Student Success Coaching Program?

Navigating a new environment is scary enough to do alone. The program offers a great way to connect you with someone that allows you to problem solve and build your skills as you navigate your new experience and also allows you to have someone who is willing and knowledgeable to answer questions you may not normally feel comfortable to ask. It's a great way to build your networks and prepare you for a rewarding college experience/career.

What is a fun fact about you or a favorite hobby?

One of my favorite hobbies is to travel; recently I went on a cruise! I love discovering new places and it is a life goal of mine to experience as many different cultures and places as I am able to! I love people and I love learning about people, but there's nothing better than experiencing it all first hand.
