Van Antwerp Hall Resident Director
I graduated with my Masters in Science in Student Affairs in High Education from Missouri State University in 2021. This is my 7th year working in housing. I've worked at three different colleges: NMU, Missouri State, and Fort Lewis College in Colorado. I've published two books! I've completed two separate year-long research projects within student affairs and higher education, focusing on student conduct processes and the experience of minoritized students. This year, my writing has been featured on Roompact, which is a higher education blog, and I've been featured on an episode of the ResEdChat podcast, too.
