What do you enjoy most about working with NAU undergrads?
I enjoy helping students develop and achieve their goals, and succeeding in what is important to them.

What is your favorite place on campus?
The North Quad: the buildings, their history, the trees, the R.C. Gorman sculpture --
and having picnic lunches!

Why should students take advantage of the Student Success Coaching program?
University life is full of opportunities and can be overwhelming at times. I think it is a great resource to students to have a coach who is focused on their learning, growth and success!

Student Success Coach 4 Significance
I'm committed to coaching students to reach their potential -- and be successful in school and life -- by being a caring, resourceful and positive listener and teacher. I believe students are in charge of and responsible for their own learning, and I want to support their self-discovery and successes by being an effective role model who students trust and count on at NAU.

What's surprised you most about your career path?
If you looked at my resume, you'd see that my career path has been a winding road, not a straight one! My job/career roles and the settings in which I've worked have varied widely; however, my values and strengths have held constant. I have been and continue to be focused and directed, and open to opportunities
