Originally from the U.S. Virgin Islands, Cush has called Indiana her second home since 2021. After earning her bachelor’s degree in psychology at Texas Woman’s University, she realized she wanted to take her passion for helping others to the next level. While an undergraduate student, Cush discovered her passion for guiding and mentoring students through their academic and social transitions while working as an academic coach. More recently, she has supported students and community development at the systems level for the Marshall County Community Foundation and United Way.
Cush joined the TSC as the 21st Century Success Specialist in January 2023, and is excited to support students on their academic journey. Cush looks forward to creating a welcoming and supportive environment at every step while helping students work through challenges and build on their strengths.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, going to indie music concerts, and being outdoors in nature! On occasion, you can find her making arts & crafts, reading top Reddit comments, and pondering questions of human connection and togetherness. Cush feels most centered when she is journaling, learning more about Caribbean history, and advocating for local, sustainable, and just food systems.
