I graduated from William & Mary’s School of Education where I earned my Master of Education degree, with a concentration in Higher Education Administration. My program focused on the study of college and university practices and policies and emphasized the areas of educational leadership, student affairs, student professional development, and program assessment. Before coming to W&M, I lived in Colorado where I earned my B.A. from Colorado College. After graduating, I spent a few years in Colorado where I held a Field Technician position with a Denver-based natural resource conservation company, and later a position as an Aquatic Biologist Technician for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
