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: Northern Michigan University, B.S., English Literature; Portland State University, M.Ed., Secondary Education and Library Media Science.
Hometown: Eaton Rapids, Michigan
Activities/Interests: Although a native Michigander, the US Army had me live large chunks of my life in other states. I've spent time living in New York, Georgia and Oregon. I enjoy spending time with my husband and son, who are both avid birders, so that makes me a recreational birder by default. When not covering myself in SPF40 to explore the natural beauty of the Sonoran, I like to cook, learn new things, travel, and eat my way through Tucson’s taquerias.
