Goals: I would like to work on knowing my limits as a Student. I tend to take on more than I should and sometimes struggle to balance it all (but I am getting better at it). I would also like to work on communicating more effectively.

Campaign Promises: I will keep documents up to date to ensure accurate information gets to students, staff, and the public domain. I want UHHSA to be involved in Student Life and Experience here at the University and to provide a space where students' voices can be heard.
