|I am the director of Adult Education and the Center for Student Success at Clovis Community College. A lover of books and history, I graduated from WTAMU with a bachelor's in history in 2012. In 2015, I moved from Amarillo, TX, to New Mexico and began attending ENMU to earn a master's degree in education. I started teaching HSE (GED®) classes part-time during grad school, and I fell in love with adult education, our students, and our program! After I completed my master's, I started working for the program full-time. When I'm not at work, I love reading, road trips, Jeopardy!, and spending time with my husband, family, and friends.

I am living proof that with effort you can achieve all of your educational goals, and I'm here to help you do the same. I can't wait to meet you!

I have been doing so ever since. In 2019, I graduated from ENMU with a bachelor's in university studies. In February of 2020, I came on full time as the AE Instructional Coordinator. While I was born and raised in Las Cruces, I call Texico home. I love to write, read, play piano, and spend time with friends and family.
