Director of Premajor Studies and Student Persistence
Building/Room: Bellarmine Advising Center
I supervise both the Premajor Studies Program and the Office of Student Persistence. I started my academic career at Western Washington University as a first-generation college student. There I earned a BA in Communication. Additionally, I have a MEd in Student Development Administration from Seattle University. I have worked at SU for over 12 years. Prior to joining Premajor Studies and Student Persistence, I was a Senior Academic Advisor in the College of Science and Engineering and an Academic Specialist in the Office of the Registrar and Operations. My advising is focused on helping students navigate the education system, normalizing the use of campus resources, and empowering students to take ownership of their education. When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, gardening, and taking my dogs for walks.
