My approach is student-centered, focused on providing relevant information so that you can make informed decisions and achieve your goals.

Spending more than a decade working at Seattle University before UWSOM, I previously held positions at Edmonds Community College, Santa Clara University, and Washington Mutual Bank. I attended Seattle University where I earned a Master of Arts degree in Education, and I am a proud Husky, having earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Washington.

In my free time I enjoy running through Spokane’s parks with my dog, exploring the outdoors with my husband and two children, and relaxing on my front porch.

My piece of career exploration (and life) advice: Never be afraid to ask. The worst they can say is ‘no.’
