Career & Leadership Services

I work at the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School helping MBA students answer the question
“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Before joining UNC I worked as a high school career counselor, call center supervisor, and crisis hotline volunteer.

When not working, I love playing with my pit bull puppy, traveling, and reading bad (wonderful) YA novels.
