Bio

Having grown up a classically-trained ballet dancer, I’ve been on and around campus since 1988. I graduated from Butler in 2005 with a degree in Spanish (concentrations in journalism, telecommunications, and dance). For seven years, I worked at the Global Healthy Living Foundation, a New York-based healthcare advocacy non-profit. From February 2014 until January 2019, I served as Administrative Specialist for the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. During Summer 2016, I also served as Administrative Specialist for Butler’s Marketing and Communications. During Summer 2017, I began serving as Legal Assistant at the Flood Family Law firm. Currently, I’m pursuing an MS in Strategic Communication at the University.

I’m a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), the Midwest Association of Colleges and Employers (MWACE, having served on the Professional Development Committee), and the Career Development Professionals of Indiana. I serve on the Handshake Trust & Safety Product Advisory Board.

I’m a trained Sustained Dialogue moderator.

I am also a certified Notary Public with the State of Indiana. There is no charge for my service. Please email me to schedule an appointment. Know that you’ll need to have a Butler I.D. or government-issued photo I.D. when it’s time for me to watch you sign your documents.

Note: The maximum fee a Notary Public may charge is ten dollars ($10) per individual notarization. (Indiana Code 33-42-14-1). Notaries may bill separately for incidental costs and services such as travel. Notaries may charge no more than the federal mileage rate as a travel fee. The current federal mileage rate can be found by visiting the IRS website. Notaries should inform clients in advance of any service fees that may be charged above the $10.00 per notarization fee. Read the Indiana Notary Public Guide.
