I have been on campus over 20 years, working in student services since January 2002.


I oversee all aspects of graduate and undergraduate student services in CEE.  I also process GSI and GSRA appointments and handle student organization funding requests.


Start date at U-M: 9/2/1997

Start date in CEE: 5/27/2008

Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio

Advice for new students: Get involved. U-M is a magnificent, massive place. The more involved you become, the smaller it seems, and the easier to find your way.

Favorite quote: “After the game, the king and pawn go into the same box.” – Italian Proverb

Favorite free time activities or hobbies: I play chess if you could not guess. My favorite vacation is going hiking in the mountains and the desert of the great southwest. I like all sports, especially college, especially football. I have attended 152 consecutive Michigan home games (and counting).
