I moved to Lawrence from Pratt, KS in 2011 to attend KU, and I have been here ever since. I am a 2015 graduate of KU’s University Honors Program and the Applied Behavioral Science department. I’m interested in higher education, the nonprofit sector, community development, and the intersection of these three areas. As a student, I was heavily involved in recruitment efforts for KU through the Office of First-Year Experience, the Office of Admissions, and the University Honors Program.
What I Do at Honors
I meet with prospective students and their families both on campus and at their high schools to discuss the Honors Program, the application process, and the opportunities available as students at KU. I also assist with the distribution and review of students’ program applications. Additionally, I advise and create personalized experience plans for Honors students and coordinate two annual receptions for students admitted into the program.
Why I Love Working in Honors
I had an incredible experience at KU, largely due to the guidance of the Honors Program and its staff, and I want to be able to give that back to current students. It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to still take an active role in the Jayhawk community every day.
