I am an Academic Advisor/International Student Specialist in the College of Science. Shortly after graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Political Science, I moved to Lafayette and began my career at Purdue. I have been at Purdue for more than 10 years with a break in the middle to stay home with young children. I previously worked in International Programs in Agriculture as the International Student and Visitors Coordinator, spending much of my time working with our incoming exchange program. I also spent some time working with the HHS Study Abroad Office among other positions before moving to the College of Science. As a child, I lived overseas for 10 years and have traveled quite a bit. I now live on a small farm with my family.
