What do you like most about working with new students? 

I love being a resource to students. College is an incredibly hectic time, especially for first-year students. I love being a source of information or providing support for students. Making an impact within a student's college experience is something I value.

What advice would you give to OU first-year students? 

I would advise first-year students to take time and explore campus! OU has a beautiful campus with many resources, ranging from entertainment to academics. Grab a friend and a map, and find what interests you!

What is your favorite place on campus? 

My favorite place is the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. It's a free resource for students, with gorgeous art exhibits.
