Big Goal

I would love to couple my communication skills along with my knowledge of business to improve international human rights on a systemic level. There are so many inequities that exist globally. I want to take on an interdisciplinary approach toward solving and improving them.

Memorable Moment

One of my most memorable moments as a Rebel was joining my sorority, Sigma Kappa. Before then, I wasn't really involved on campus. However, my bid day changed everything. I immediately felt welcome in my organization and it inspired me to continue getting involved and giving back on campus.


When my dad passed away during my time at UNLV. The grief I experienced made it difficult for me to attend classes and complete assignments. However, with the support of family and friends, I was able to work hard and finish my degree.

Being a Rebel Means

Taking on uncertainty and challenges and things people have never done and putting your own unique spin on it. UNLV has let pursue all my passions and to integrate the things I want to do and to be fearless in the things I want to do in life.
