This is my first opportunity in undergraduate admissions. My past experiences were in graduate admissions, assessment, and testing all at Kansas State University.

What class would you take at UMM?
I would like to take any of the courses from the Recreation and Tourism program.

What is your favorite thing to do in the area? I enjoy going to the beach and reveling in beautiful coastline. I spent the last two-years in land-locked Kansas, so I am happy to be in an area where I can enjoy the coast again.

I worked here on campus as a student worker in the admissions office for 4 ½ years before being hired as an Admissions Counselor for UMM.

What class would you take at UMM? I took many classes at UMM while I was a student, but if I could go back, I would take Sailing and Basic Seamanship or the Animal Behavior & Selection of Service Dogs Lab.

What is your favorite thing to do in the area?
I like hanging out at Roque Bluffs Beach and hiking the Sunrise Trail. This area is so beautiful and I like to take advantage of all the easily accessible trails.

After spending the past two years teaching English at a public high school in Rennes, France, I am happy to be back in my home state.

What class would you take at UMM? I would like to take Sailing and Basic Seamanship. I’ve always admired sailboats from afar, and I would like to get some experience out on the water.

What is your favorite thing to do in the area? I love exploring all the amazing outdoor locales this area has to offer.  From swimming in the ocean to hiking at the Cutler Coast Land Preserve to running along the Down East Sunrise Trail, I love being able to discover the wild wonders of Down East Maine.
