  • What is your favorite thing about working for Upward Bound?
    My favorite thing about working for UB is that I get to give back to rural schools and communities much like the one I grew up in. I always wanted to provide the resources I needed growing up and my position at UB allows me to do just that! 
  • What was your favorite class or activity in high school?
    In high school, I was OBSESSED with all things band (I still play the tenor saxophone) and chorus (singing is my favorite pastime), clearly I still kind of am. 
  • Fun fact or hobbies?
    In high school I was involved in competitive marching band and indoor percussion and won an Atlantic Coast Championship event my senior year!
  • What's one piece of advice for Upward Bound students?
    A large part of growing and learning is figuring out that you can and should ask for help when you need it, when you're not sure if you need it, and when you're confused. You can ask for reassurance, validation, and for someone to explain something again. The most meaningful support that UB can provide is the kind that you ask for.  We're listening! Its okay to not be an expert or know all things related to college, that's why we're here! You do not have to figure it all out on your own. 


Our offices are located on the second floor of the University Union in Room 257.
