Professional Achievements

Kellogg Institute Certified

Institutional Service and Responsibilities

As a Learning Specialist, I get to advise students campus wide. I help students build four year plans, figure out double majors, and many other advising type issues. I also work closely with First Year Seminar curriculum, developing the Common Program part of the course. I oversee Tutoring Services, training tutors and developing tutor schedules.

Personal Interests

My passion is helping individuals develop strong and productive learning strategies. Everyone learns differently and discovering how one learns best can be a life changing discovery and a real start to true learning.

I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family, either just watching movies or doing something special together. Baking is an obsession that my family, students, and coworkers get to enjoy.
