If I wasn't an Academic Advisor I would have been a criminal investigator or working with alternatives to incarceration programs, specifically for juveniles, as well as re-entry programs.

My major in college was Criminal Justice and I chose it because I was interested in law and the criminal justice system.

The top three life skills that I learned while in college are:
1) plans/dreams change and you have to adjust gracefully
2) make connections
3) drink water, eat snacks, and READ

My favorite quotes are:
The only way to get through it is to do it!
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

If my life had a theme song it would be Listen by Beyonce.
