My Responsibilities

As a Residence Hall Coordinator, I support students as they transition into the college experience, by creating safe and inclusive communities in which they may thrive. I supervise a group of Resident Assistants (RAs) who assist in the efforts of creating a fun and educational environment for our residents to live and learn.

In addition to my housing responsibilities, my interests also include working with underrepresented populations to improve their campus experiences. I also have prior experience working with the National PanHellenic Council (NPHC) to improve their leadership influence within the African American community on-campus. I serve as a resource not only to on-campus students, but to all students striving to live, learn and grow into the future leaders of the community.
