Personal Interests

I really love to travel - my first trip overseas was to Australia, and I would like to head overseas again soon! I also enjoy exploring major cities in the United States and experiencing the different cultures in each. Some other interests are exploring coffee shops in Knoxville, taking care of my plants, running and group exercise classes, plus trying new food, then convincing family and friends to try it as well! Always ready to talk about The Office, if you are interested!


Education

B.S. International Studies, with a focus on East Asia and Oceania, Certificate in Business Foundations, Indiana University - Bloomington

In progress - MS in College Student Personnel, University of Tennessee - Knoxville


Educational Philosophy

Education is not something that stops when you finish formalized education - we should strive to continue to actively learn so that we can be informed, global citizens and keep evolving with the world around us. Education is something that is holistic, which means that you also learn from being involved on campus, by working or volunteering, and by pursuing your unique interests.
