CALES/SALT Center Learning Coach

Role at the SALT Center: As the CALS/SALT Center Learning Coach, I work with students in the College of Agriculture, Life & Environmental Sciences to develop goals for success, assist them in incorporating academic strategies and provide them with guidance as they navigate the college experience.

Education: Mount Mercy University, B.S., Elementary Education with minors in Reading and Psychology; Grand Valley State University, M.Ed., Educational Leadership

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 outdoor activities like hiking, golfing, taking my dog for long walks and spending time by the pool. My favorite time is spent traveling with my husband and daughter. We love looking for new, fun adventures all over the country. 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!
