Senior Lecturer & Director of Student Success

I am passionate about working with students! I love teaching, advising, and mentoring!

My background is in education. In fact, I have an undergraduate degree in elementary education, with a concentration in mathematics. Why mathematics? Mathematics has always been fun for me! I then did my graduate work in mathematics education, specifically prevention of mathematics anxiety.

I enjoy getting to know the students whom I teach, advise, and mentor. The more I know about them, the better I am able to help them and guide them.
