Academic Success Coordinator
Coordinator of Undergraduate Success
I am so excited to be coming back to CSU and DARE after working in college athletics. I spent the previous four years as the Coordinator for Student-Athlete Development & Special Projects at Seton Hall University. Prior to Seton Hall, I spent two years with the Department of Athletics at the University of Louisville.
In addition to developing and coordinating community service activities for all of Seton Hall’s student-athletes and teams to participate in, I was the advisor for the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and its event planning. I worked with both campus-wide and athletics communications channels to help promote all of the community service and outreach initiatives that Seton Hall\’s student-athletes participated in on a regular basis.
I implemented programming designed to support student-athlete leadership training and character development, in addition to career planning. I assisted student-athletes with job search strategies for internships and post-graduate careers and in the spring of 2012, helped launch the first annual Student-Athlete Leadership forum.
Additionally, I was the academic advisor for three varsity teams, helping student-athletes with major declaration, class selection, program advising, and classroom success. Before Seton Hall, I spent two years at the University of Louisville earning my masters in Sport Administration. I was a sports information intern for two years and also served as an Athletic Business Affairs Assistant and the Assistant for Student-Athlete Development and Championships. I volunteered at many events including BIG EAST Conference, Mountain West Conference and NCAA Championship events. I grew up on a ranch in Bayfield, Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Business. During my time at CSU, I was a Colorado State FFA Officer, an Ag Ambassador, an intern in the Sports Information office and was active in Collegiate Farm Bureau, CSU Marching Band, and Collegiate Cattlewomen. I currently work with the Go4theGoal Foundation and support their Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer initiative.
