Professional Achievements

I have been a teacher, school counselor and administrator in K-12 education for over 30 years. 

Institutional Service and Responsibilities

I am serving as Coordinator of Disability Services. The Office of Disability Services (ODS)collaborates with the student in the planning, implementing, and accommodating of appropriate services to develop an individualized accommodation plan. Disability Services works in partnership with the Burton Center for Student Success on disability-related issues of academic accommodations, learning strategies, advocacy skills and transition issues. The ODS coordinates the procurement and the scheduling/proctoring of exams for students with accommodations when taken at the Office of Disability Services.

Personal Interests

I am a student advocate and have worked my entire life on helping students be supported, challenged, and encouraged to reach their full potential as productive citizens. I am married and have three grown children and four grandchildren. I enjoy the outdoors, exercising, gardening, traveling, and reading. I love having fun!
