Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Washington University

I'm a St. Louis, MO native and honored to work in higher education for over two decades. I have been a part of the Washington University in St. Louis, MO community for several years. I have served in various roles, including student affairs advisor, registrar, academic advising, student development advocate, and club advisors. Two and half years ago, I transitioned into the vital inaugural Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program manager position at WashU Olin Business School. In this role, I have concentrated on enhancing the Olin community through innovative programming, community building, and an atmosphere of mutual respect and belonging. I have an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion work as a member of the University's Diversity Delegates, Olin's Racial Equity Task Force, and many other on- and off-campus initiatives, including WashU Staff Ombuds role, Danforth Staff Council, University Sexual Harassment Investigation Board, Co-chair Diversity Inclusion Forum for Faculty and Staff, Day of Dialogue and Action, advocacy for an inclusive culture for all, and involvement with many university committees. My involvement in the community includes St. Louis Business Diversity Initiative and the Diversity Awareness Partnership. I have board membership in the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) and I am currently the President of AACRAO. I'm a 2019 alum of the WashU Professional Leadership and Network Academy and a 2019 W.E.B. DuBois Staff Mentor Award recipient, an award nominated by students. I earned a B.A. in Business Administration, an MBA degree, and a veteran of U.S. Army reserves. As a first-generation student, my focus is to ensure all individuals have access and equity within any environment. That setting is inclusive and allows one to thrive to their fullest potential. I see education as a human right that should open up opportunities for advancement. I know an inclusive environment will allow anyone to thrive to their fullest potential. I love traveling, live music, cycling, and sporting events with my husband. I love enjoying creating infinite memories filled with joy and laughter with friends and family.
