Coordinator, Student Success Center, Academic Affairs
Degree Information:Bachelor of Science in Speech Communications, specializing in public relations with a minor in journalism from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, Carbondale, Ill.; Master of Science in Community Development from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, Carbondale, Ill.
Interests:Beading, listening to music and dancing, healing arts, yoga, meditation and belly dancing.
Professional Activities:I have been serving college students for the past 14 years, from career advising to academic advising and student activities to student success. I have been an adjunct instructor for these institutions, as well. Even though the subject matter has changed from class to class (collaborative learning, critical thinking, career development or study skills), all have focused on student success. My personal mission statement is “To facilitate, motivate, listen, demonstrate, educate . . . whatever it takes . . . to help another live how they want to live!” There is no greater joy than to see an individual discover who he/she is or to see an individual find his/her passion.
