I’m the Director of Student Advising and Support Services in the College of Professional Studies. I facilitate the coordination of advising and support services in the college including recruitment, retention and development. This position is designed to be a second-layer of support for students within the college along with serving as a resource and liaison for faculty and staff.

I am the primary advisor for prospective nursing students and undecided students in the college. Being part of a student’s academic path is an honor and privilege. I’ve been blessed to have many mentors and guides in my life and I hope to serve as a mentor and guide to others.

Previously I held the position of chair for SSU's University Administrative Assembly (UAA) and serve as the president of the Ohio Academic Advising Association (OHAAA). The exciting journey at Shawnee State University began in February 2015.

Prior to SSU, I worked at Juniata College in the offices of Campus Ministry and Diversity Inclusion. I’m a native Pennsylvania, novice gardener, graphic designer, specialty coffee barista, Episcopalian, and lover of classic rock and indie music.

I’m an Academic Advisor in the College of Professional Studies. My goal is to work with and help assist you through your college journey. I provide support to students through various methods, including one-on-one advising, being an advocate and liaison to faculty and staff, and ensuring you understand about all available resources across the campus.

I am the primary advisor for prospective allied health sciences (including the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS), physical therapy assistants (PTA), occupational therapy assistants (OTA), and a second-layer of support for students in the School of Education and the Department of Business Administration. In addition, I assist students that are on academic probation within the college.

I have been employed at Shawnee State University since 2010, in various capacities across campus. During the past two years, I have been an academic advisor and testing coordinator in University College. I have also spent time in support roles with health sciences, the School of Education, Financial Aid, and the Office of Institutional Research and Planning. Prior to my time at Shawnee State University, I was employed by Verizon Communications for 29 years. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration here at Shawnee State University and my Master of Business Administration at The University of Findlay.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, as well as, my 93 pound Labrador, Bear. Working with students, seeing them grow, and achieving their goals is the most rewarding work I have ever been involved in. I look forward to working with you and watching you achieve your dreams!
