I have been involved in student support services or in higher education at various times for decades. I worked in non-profits in New Orleans to house people experiencing homelessness. Supporting youth or those in need brings me the most joy. Currently, I am Coordinator of Academic Writing & Post-graduation Planning at the TRIO Student Support program called the Center for Human Enrichment at the university of Northern Colorado. I am a writer, a self-taught photographer, and I have experience with oral history recording.
