But I'm Already Declared?

Students will complete a Declaration of Major Form with their academic advisor. Most students will complete this declaration half-way through their sophomore year. Your advisor will assist with this process. Students with many advanced credits or transfer credits may petition to declare early.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and am a pretty loyal expat. I love living in Denver, visiting all of the different neighborhoods, exploring restaurants, and riding my bike around town. I realized I wanted to work in higher education while serving as a peer advisor my senior year at the University of Iowa. I am excited to be at Mines doing what I love- working with students and providing academic support. I look forward to hearing about your goals and being here to encourage you as you work toward achieving those goals. My personal interests include cooking, reading, spending time with friends and family, and traveling. I hope to meet you soon!

I am a Colorado native raised in a family full of love, righteousness and amazing food! My passion for helping students succeed is built on the pursuit of my education and how that helped me transform and widen my perspective of the world around me. As a first-generation student, my path to this moment has come with a fair amount of difficulty and from that difficulty came growth and a fresh sense of purpose- something I hope to share with the students I serve. I love getting to know people, spending time with my family and friends, hiking, reading, learning, music, art, sports and everything in between.
With that said, I’m proud to be a part of the Mines community!

I am a Colorado native and a Mines alumna. I love being back here at Mines helping students through this amazing institution. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, food, naps, craft projects, reading, funny videos, travel and exploring whatever I find interesting. I encourage you to ask questions and explore what your heart pulls you to while you are here. Push beyond your comfort zone a little and try something new. You never know what you may find. I also keep snacks in my office in the cupcake cookie jar on my desk (and candy in my candy dish), so stop in if you need a quick snack!

I am a Texas girl all the way! If you have seen or read Friday Night Lights, then you know my hometown of Odessa, Texas. I moved from San Antonio to Denver with my wiener dog, Woodstock in January of 2018. The city has been good to us, and we are happy to be here soaking up the Colorado sun. From a high school English teacher to a college coach for underrepresented students, education is where my heart is. My service as a Peace Corps Volunteer left me with an appetite for adventure, and I am always looking for a new experience. I am fortunate to work with the Mines community on my next excursion. I look forward to meeting you all and hearing about your own adventures!
