Ask Me About

Career exploration and exploring ideas and ways to pursue your passions and interests.

Advice to students

Like the country song lyrics say "life’s a dance you learn as you go." You don’t need to have your whole life planned out at age 18 because life evolves and changes as you go. Plus, sometimes great opportunities pop up that might not be “in the plan” but are 100% worth saying yes to!

Favorite job as a college student

House O’ Dreams grounds crew. I loved the peaceful, natural beauty, getting to work with my hands and learn more about plants. Plus, the opportunity to drive a tractor, bobcat and dump truck was pretty neat.

Favorite spot on campus

House o’ Dreams – it’s beautiful up there all year round!

Favorite assessment/career search tool

The Enneagram for self and interpersonal reflection and growth. Handshake for exploring jobs and internships.

Favorite quotes

 "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face." -Eleanor Roosevelt  

Favorite thing about working with Berry students in Career Development

I love the energy and enthusiasm Berry students bring to the table in everything they do. It’s contagious! It’s also fun to support and encourage students as they pursue their interests during their time at Berry and beyond.
