"I truly love the environment and people at Cornerstone. I have enjoyed my time as a student, and I am thankful for the opportunities to grow professionally here as well. Both from a student perspective and as a staff member, I have seen the ways CU has invested into the people who are here, and I love being able to contribute to that mission in my current role in advising as well."
