Biography

Primary Responsibilities: Assist, mentor, and coach CICS Exploratory Track students as they navigate the academic process of developing an academic plan, explore options, and declaring a major.  I am here to help empower each student to pursue their academic passions and goals (to graduate).

Advice

  • Be a self-advocate!  UMass is a big place; however, it gets much smaller once you reach out and make a connection.
  • Make the most of your UMass experience; work hard, study what interests you, follow your heart, stay focused on the goal of earning a degree and have fun!
  • Make a professional connection with at least one professor every semester. 
  • See your advisor early and often.

Likes Best:  Working with and helping students identify their strengths and interests while they navigate the university, develop academic goals, and (most importantly) empowering them to achieve their goals.

Education:  MEd, Bowling Green State University; BS, physical education, Norwich University
