Professional Title
Academic Advisor

I joined the CAHSS Advising team in March 2015. I work with new undeclared freshman and new declared freshman in the areas listed below. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Lake Forest College with a major in Studio Art and Communication, and received a master’s degree from The University of Oklahoma in Landscape Architecture with a focus in Regional and City Planning and Sustainability. Professionally, I have been working in higher education for approximately 10 years. I enjoy helping students explore the many academic opportunities available at UMD and love seeing students realize their passions and potential. Please feel free to stop by anytime – I’m happy to help.
