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.
