I started working in Disability & Accessibility Services at Berea College in the summer of 2013, but have worked in disability services in higher education since 2004. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy working with students, faculty, and staff on creating an accessible and welcoming environment for all. My background is in education and counseling. In my free time I like reading, hiking, swimming, and hanging out with my family.
I am a Berea (2010) and University of Kentucky (2017) grad and have worked in higher education since 2011. My Masters degree is in Rehabilitation Counseling and my academic interests include student retention initiatives for neuro-diverse individuals and Collegiate Recovery Programs for students with substance use disorders. My goal is to help students figure out what success looks like for them and how to support their goals. I enjoy reading, playing tabletop games, and my husband and I like to attend music festivals and concerts when we’re not playing with our toddler and dog.
