About me

I am brand new to student services in CEHD at the University of Minnesota (as of April, 2023), however I have previous advising experience at other universities in the Twin Cities metro. I am very passionate about working with and providing support to students as they develop and work toward their academic, career and personal goals.

My educational background includes a B.A in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Pre-Primary education from the University of Minnesota Morris. After teaching in the classroom for about 6 years I decided to go back for my masters. I received my M.A in Leadership in Student Affairs from the University of St. Thomas which started my professional advising career.

I live with my husband and 2 dogs in St. Paul and I love to explore new restaurants, coffee shops and breweries with friends and family in my free time.

We are committed to providing a comfortable, inclusive, and respectful environment for all members of our communities. If there is information you feel would be helpful for us to know, including disability or other accommodation needs, I invite you to share it with me directly or let the front desk know when you schedule an appointment.

Drop-in advising

Drop-in advising is available over Zoom. Check with your advisor for their weekly availability.

Drop-in advising is usually limited to a 10 to 15 minute session. Students needing more time should schedule a 30 minute appointment by calling Student Services at 612-625-3339.

Example of issues for drop-in advising

  • Review of classes and class schedule
  • APAS review and updates
  • Petition discussions
  • Signatures for academic forms
  • Short Q&A
  • General discussion
  • Non-academic topics (such as time management, connecting on campus, etc.)
