Assistant Director


What do you enjoy most about working with UT undergrads?

The best part of working with UT undergrads is walking along with them and seeing them grow.  College is a great time to discover new things about the world and yourself, and UT has so many ways to do just that.

What is the most important advice you would give new students?

Reach out to resources, like the ASC, often.  No one is expecting you to know everything, so use your resources.

What is your favorite place on campus?

The benches outside of Dunford Hall.

Why should students take advantage of the ASC?

We are here to help.  More importantly, we have a dedicated staff of professionals that enjoy helping students grow and achieve their goals.
