What do you enjoy most about working with NAU students?

I enjoy learning students’ individual stories and seeing how they continue to succeed and grow throughout the semesters.

Why should students take advantage of the Student Success Coaching Program?

It really helps to have an NAU professional on the student's college "team". So if anything unusual or challenging happens, the student can voice what they are going through and the Student Success Coach can provide guidance, which relieves pressure for the student. Also, when things are going great it is so nice to celebrate with your SS Coach!

What is a fun fact about you or a favorite hobby?

My hobbies are writing, running and hiking. A fun fact is I've hitch hiked through several countries in Europe.
