Welcome to The Honors College website. I enjoy working with the EMU Honors students and staff. I’ve worked at Eastern for 14 years and am also the Associate Director of Academic Advising in the University Advising & Career Development Center. I have over 25 years of educational and administrative experiences in higher education. I’ve also served in a number of leadership positions within the National Association of Academic Advising (NACADA) and our state-affiliated professional organization, Michigan Academic Advising Association (MIACADA).
I enjoy helping students to fulfill their dreams of an education that is meaningful to their career aspirations. Through the classroom experiences as well as the co-curricular experiences, students have unbelievable opportunities available to them at EMU. I challenge and encourage students to maximize their experiences and try something new that may broaden their understanding of the world. I believe we have a responsibility to contribute to the greater good and help those that may be less-fortunate in our own unique ways with our own unique gifts. I love working with students to help them fulfill their potential—and that just may be through The Honors College!
