Biography

Favorite place on campus

I love our new athletic facility InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field! As the daughter of a former UA football player, my dad and I are equally proud of the Zips’ new home on campus. The state-of-the-art 30,000 seat stadium also serves as an academic building, as it houses the Sport Science and Wellness Education Department. I look forward to cheering the Zips to victory this fall with new Head Coach Terry Bowden!

Let’s talk finances! Higher education is an investment. Be prepared to ask questions about FAFSA/financial aid and university-wide scholarships. We’re here to help.
