As an Academic Advisor, Tori works with Honors students with last names beginning D-H. She enjoys connecting with students to learn about what they are passionate about and help them explore themselves, the world, and the opportunities that arise through their college experience and beyond.
As a Tucson native, Tori loves the desert and everything about this beautiful city. She is the youngest of three and was the first in her family to attend college. Tori graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Master of Arts degree in Higher Education. As an undergraduate, Tori found her passion for post-secondary education by participating in, and later working for, peer mentoring programs that allowed her to connect with other first-generation college students and explore opportunities for personal, academic, and professional development.
Tori is passionate about creating spaces where students can build communities that will provide support as they develop as individuals and find success in college, and hopes that she can also serve as a member of your support community. In her free time, Tori is a pop culture enthusiast, a dachshund aficionado, and an avid eater who enjoys cooking and baking.
