Advice to students: Really think about why you are here. Why is a college education important to you? Why is IUPUI important to you? When you identify those values, then set goals, seek experiences, and seize opportunities that will continue to drive that motivation.
If you could be any major in your cluster, what would it be? Why?: The Exploratory Cluster really includes every major offered at IUPUI so my options are endless! I actually wish I had taken some time when I started college to explore majors before deciding. I would have really appreciated the time and thought many of our students take to find a major that aligns with their values, interests, personality, and skills.
Biography: I am originally from the Indianapolis area and have spent my entire life in Indiana. And while I love home, I also love to travel. Some of the more exciting places I have visited include Iceland; Banff National Park in Canada; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. I also love to hike and spend time outdoors when the weather is nice! When the weather isn’t nice, I read, work on puzzles, and watch lots of TV and movies. I now live in Fishers with my husband and our special needs cat, Rory, who happens to be blind. Some of my favorite things include coffee, chocolate, the color blue, to-do lists, bonfires, friends, and family.
