2016 PANDAs!


Greetings friends and welcome to the 2016 PANDAs!

For those of you new to this, now annual tradition, the PANDA, an acronym for Positive And Niftily Delightful Associates, is something I randomly came up with during one of the commercial breaks of the 2015 Oscars.

I am currently the Assistant Director of Student Life for Registered Student Organizations and Late-Night Programming at Michigan State University. After earning my B.A. from the University of Michigan-Flint, I entered the Student Affairs profession. After a few years in the field, I returned to school and earned my M.A. in Educational Leadership-Higher Education Student Affairs from Eastern Michigan University. In my spare time I blog about my thoughts and musings on current issues in higher education, student affairs, digital worlds, identity development and general life inspirations and observations. I also volunteer a lot for my fraternity and multiple regional and national professional associations.
