Why did you decide to work for TRIO?

I have always loved working with people and have also felt the need to serve. I love working with these students and seeing them thrive and grow exponentially in all aspects of life. Knowing that I have made a difference, even if minor, in someone’s day and possibly even life path, brings me so much joy. The opportunities that TRIO provides for their students and even their employees is life changing.

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?

I am still new to the campus, so I don’t know the campus very well, but wherever there is food and coffee is usually a good place for me!

Personal Fun Fact:

I have always loved sports and played soccer from the ages of 5-17.  I can also chug a bottle of water in 15 seconds.
