What is your approach to advising?

My approach to advising is to honor the student experience by validating who they are and their story. I always put the student first! I have a deep passion to help students achieve their fullest potential by listening, being supportive of their academic goals, and connecting them to resources on campus.

Save Your Semester Workshop

Having a hard semester? Grades and perfomance not what you hoped for?

Save your Semester workshops are designed to help you navigate the options and resources still available to you around the midpoint of the semester. The workshops will focus on College policies such as grading option changes (P/NP), exceptional change petitions, incomplete grades, and withdrawal. Campus resources will also be discussed. This Workshop is open to all students, not just those on academic probation.
