Academic Advisor
Office of Adult Students & Extended Services


Working with adult and nontraditional students is incredibly rewarding for me because I am able to see firsthand how the pursuit of education can change a student’s life. I like to focus on understanding a student’s career and personal goals so that I can assist them in putting together an effective academic plan of action. Returning to college can be a challenging process and that’s why I am very proud to work with a team of advisors who encourage and motivate our amazing OASES students!
