            2009-2012, Master of Education

            I earned my Master's in Education from UNLV in 2012 and I found the faculty to be incredibly knowledgeable and student-focused. During my time as a graduate student I worked as a Graduate Assistant--which provided exceptional financial support--and was able to work closely with the undergraduate student population. I found the students--undergraduate, graduate, and professional--to be kind, engaged, and thoughtful scholars and citizens. GO REBELS!

            2006-2009, Bachelor of Science in Education

            UNLV was home to me, and where I befriended many people who have become life-long friends and mentors. Taking on UNLV Lead Team was one of those life-changing experiences; I learned I had a voice and that I could change my world with it.

            1992-1994, Master in Hotel Administration

            Getting my Master in Hotel Administration at UNLV in 1994 was a definite milestone in my carreer. I had the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the industry, such as Dr. Kaye Chon, currently in Hong Kong. The internship opportunities in Las Vegas are endless, and in my case it ended up as a six year employment at MGM Grand. I am proud to say Las Vegas has been my main school, but academically and professionally!!!!
