Born in Santa Barbara but became a member of the Rogue Valley Community at the young age of 4. I grew up in Ashland Oregon attending Ashland High School and Southern Oregon University. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Sociology and Human Communication in 2007. After having spent 10 years as a chef, including through my undergraduate work, I found a position here at Rogue as an Academic Advisor. In my second year I became the Transfer Advisor and held that position for 6 years. Once Rogue began Athletics I saw the opportunity to combine my personal passions with my career. I have been an athlete in many forms my entire life. From football, soccer, basketball, and track to my current passion of MMA and martial arts being an athlete and working with them is a process I fully enjoy. I am currently pursuing a degree in Sports Management and Athletic Administration and look to one day become and Athletic Director. I am excited to be a part of a growing program and working with our student athlete to help them reach their full potential in all areas of life. Go Ospreys!!!
