What brought you to KU: The level of autonomy I have in my role as an Assistant Complex Director was a big factor in my choosing of KU Student Housing.

How are staff welcomed and provided a sense of belonging: KU Student Housing does a great job of supporting new staff in their transition time. Transitioning to a completely new place can be difficult but the welcoming atmosphere of the people within KU Student Housing makes the transition easier.

Where is your favorite place on campus or in Lawrence: My favorite place in Lawrence is Mass Street. There are thrift stores and record shops and those are my favorite places to spend some of my extra time.
