I grew up in Houma, however, moved to Thibodaux to join the Nicholls family as a student in 2002. Once I completed my graduate program, I returned to Nicholls to work as an Academic Advisor for University College in 2011. After teaching sociology for a number of years as an Adjunct Instructor, I began teaching full time for the program in 2019. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Serving the Thibodaux community is a passion of mine and I am able to do this through my work with the Thibodaux Service League and the Little Colonels Closet. I also serve as the Academic Adviser for Phi Mu Sorority and am a member of the Bayou Region Alumni Association of Phi Mu.
