I joined the Office of Academic Advocacy in 2021, but I have been with USF since 2014 and have worked in higher education for over 15 years, including undergraduate admissions, financial aid, and most recently academic advising for the past five years. I firmly believe that every student has the potential to achieve their educational and career goals and I thoroughly enjoy helping them do that. I value developing relationships based in respect and trust with students. I want to know you as a whole person so I can best assist you along your path to graduation.
I am a transplant to the Tampa area and am originally from Connecticut, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Connecticut. I also lived in Pennsylvania while earning my Master of Education in Higher Education Administration at the University of Pennsylvania. My family, including two teenage sons, and I have lived here since 2009 and love the warmth of both the weather and the people here.
