    Biography
    Tonja Brown has a Master’s degree in Student Development Administration from Seattle University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Washington. Tonja served as an Educational Planner at Edmonds Community College prior to her transition to the College of Arts and Sciences at Seattle University. Previously, she served as the Leadership Development Fellow in the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University, and also has experience working as a study abroad advisor and as a bank teller.

    In my role as Academic Advisor, I enjoy engaging in conversation with students around ways to deepen the SU experience. I am active in campus committee work which aims to enrich and enhance the quality of academic advising at SU. My husband, Matt, and I have a fun-loving toddler, Brandon, who entertains us with silliness. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, running my dog, spending quiet time reading, and enjoying all that the Seattle area has to offer.

    Biography

    As Assistant Dean for Student Academic Services, I oversee academic advising services in the College of Arts and Sciences and work with students who are academically and personally struggling. I work with A&S students at all academic levels and from a variety of majors to make and meet their personal and academic goals. Outside of the ASAC, I spend time around Capitol Hill exploring new restaurants and spending time with my family. I love to hike and bike and being outdoors in and around Puget Sound.

    Biography
    As an academic advisor, I work with students within the College of Arts and Sciences to plan out their academic and personal goals. I am a graduate student at SU in the Student Development Administration program and just moved to the city! I love live music, trying new restaurants, baking (especially cupcakes) and road trips! I'm a Pacific Northwest girl through and through and I love exploring and discovering new places and fun things to do here.
