  • Executive Assistant & Business Manager to the Vice President of Finance & Administration


As a native Texan, I am enthralled by the changing of seasons, the snow, and the beautiful nature that Ohio has to offer. After earning my bachelor’s in communications with a minor in English literature at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, I began my career in the U.S. Navy as a journalist and photographer. After fulfilling my active duty contract, I transitioned into work in Municipal Government as a Public Affairs Liason, and Business Manager to both a Mayor and City Manager. I am excited to be a part of the Oberlin team and look forward to the many opportunities Oberlin has to offer.

In my free time, I volunteer, write, and work on my art. My favorite place to be is in any bookstore or library.
