Why did you choose Daniels?

After such an amazing undergrad experience I could not have imagined a better place to pursue my MBA. I love the idea of growing alongside a cohort and I like how naturally everyone becomes not only your colleagues but your friends. I also like Daniels commitment to integrating environmental and ethics concepts into its curriculum. It is also one of the only programs in the country that includes a retreat at the beginning of the program, and a global trip at the end of the program. 

Previous Education

B.A In Psychology, and Minors in Business Administration and Communication 

Pre-Grad School Experience

Before coming to Daniels, I was a professional athlete. I competed in three Olympic Games, 2008 Beijing, 2012 London, and 2016 Rio de Janeiro. I was also a volunteer assistant coach for the University of Denver Gymnastics team, where I mentored and coached 15 student-athletes to a NCAA Regional win, and to NCAA National Finals. Currently, I am an entrepreneur overseeing multiple business line budgets and cash flows for services rendered and products sold and executing marketing campaigns and promotions while pursuing two master’s degrees.

Post Grad School Goal

Daniels College of Business is helping me define my career path and I find myself being molded within this program. Ultimately, my goal is to work in a company that emphasizes corporate business responsibility in the areas of sports administration and compliance, consulting, or the study of human behavior with emphasis on market-driven results and innovation. In the meantime, I am trusting the process and allowing my entrepreneurial mindset to be open to new opportunities.


I enjoy spending quality time with my husband outdoors. I love hiking, snowboarding, camping, playing with our dog Forest and traveling. I also enjoy watching professional sports events and cheering on our student-athletes.
