Associate Director, Office of Academic Advising

Background and areas of interest:

I have over 25 years of higher education experience – advising, admissions, alumni relations, and university housing.  I absolutely love “good” coffee, spending time in my studio crafting when it is raining, gardening when it is sunny, and watching my daughter play softball. 

What brought you to the U of O?

I joined the UO community in 2012 as a member of the University of Housing team and never left! 

How did you get involved in academic advising?

I have made it my personal and professional purpose to make sure students know they belong in higher education. I strive to provide and connect students with university services, resources, and people – and mostly, that we care!
