Number of years at the U:

I started at the University of Utah in 2009 as an undergraduate student, receiving my B.S. in 2012. I have been an employee at the University of Utah since June 2013.

Why did you decide to work at the U of U:

I was fortunate in my collegiate experience to have opportunities and resources made available to me by the University of Utah. My desire in coming back to work for the University of Utah is to share my experiences with other students, hopefully getting them excited about their future in college.

If I didn't work in recruitment, I'd be...

...developing a career in Healthcare. I grew up in a family of Healthcare professionals, both of my parents are registered nurses and my twin sister is pursuing a Masters in Applied Behavioral Analysis.

Where are you most likely to be found hanging out on campus:

At one of the numerous cafes or restaurants located on campus, such as Tony Caputo's in the Tanner Humanities Building, for "there is no love sincerer than the love of food."

Favorite Ute moment/memory:

My favorite Ute memory occurred in my senior year. I had the opportunity to work as a Sports Intern through Utah Sport Properties. As a student I loved attending Ute sporting events and being in the MUSS was one of the exhilarating feelings of community I experienced as a student; there is no equal to Utah's traditions, rivalries, and the unique atmosphere that occurs when our fans sing the "Utah Man" fight song in sync with the marching band. However, at my last undergraduate football I was able to reflect on my collegiate experiences, and realized that in that moment I had never been prouder to be a Ute.

Family members who attended the U of U:

My twin sister and I attended together.

Favorite Salt Lake restaurant:

Les Madeleines. As an undergraduate student, I spent several of my weekends studying in this French café. Their "pièce de résistance" is the Kouing Aman, a rich buttery pastry from Brittany, France.
