What I enjoy the most about being an advisor is developing relationships with the students, being able to guide them through formative and, sometimes, difficult periods of their lives. Throughout my career in higher education, I have been actively involved in student development and have been strongly committed to helping students grow and succeed both in college and after graduation. As a member of the Student Success and Advising team at Lyman Briggs, I work to create an inclusive space where all students receive the support they need to develop their passions and achieve their educational goals. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and two Shelties. I also enjoy running, walking, dancing and skiing.
