I am serving as the Recruitment Admissions Outreach Coordinator in The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Department of Global Inclusion and Engagement. My goal is to promote UW-Milwaukee to prospective multicultural students and their families, via outreach visits to high schools, churches, community- based organizations and the broader communities of color.

My prior positions on campus included Interim Director of the Black Cultural Center, Assistant to the Dean of Student Services, and Employment Liaison with the Career Development Center. Additionally I have served as an advisor to the Black Student Union and Student Athletes as well as assisting with recruitment, retention, and graduation. I also have experience developing employment opportunities within the public and private sector. I have a clear understanding of the needs and challenges of students of color on campus and have a strong compassion to see this student population succeed while obtaining their degree.

I hold a Bachelors of Arts degree in Business Administration, with a double major in Human Resources Management and General Management from Marian.  My education coupled with my professional experience has afforded me the knowledge to advise, mentor and address the needs of all of our students on campus.
