Role at the SALT Center: As a Strategic Learning Specialist, I work with students to help create their Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) by collaboratively developing goals for success, incorporating academic strategies, and providing students with guidance and encouragement throughout their university experience.
Education: Mount Mercy University, B.S., Elementary Education with minors in Reading and Psychology; Grand Valley State University, M.Ed., Educational Leadership
Hometown: Holland, Michigan
Activities/Interests: After having relocated to Tucson from the Midwest, I have taken advantage of the warm sunny days to explore the area. I enjoy running, hiking and spending time by the pool. My favorite time is any time I get to spend with my husband and daughter. We are three peas in a pod and love looking for new, fun adventures. We are currently in search of the best pizza and ice cream spots in Tucson. Life is short, so we try to eat dessert first!
I enjoy working with learners using the SALT Center services because their determination to continually move themselves forward is inspiring.
