    “In my job, I get to work with a lot of units and departments across campus helping students and faculty solve problems.

    I feel like I am the luckiest person on the campus to do what I do, work where I work; fostering an interdisciplinary community at Boise State University.”

Working for Boise State, I am able to further my educational goal to pursue my masters and I am able to do this due to the fee waiver benefit and the flexibility and support I receive from my leadership team. I value that flexibility to keep improving myself. Being a lifelong learner is a passion and it also helps me be able to relate to our students as I am experiencing what they are experiencing. My ultimate goal, to teach, of course!”
