Associate Dean of Students
I serve as the Title IX, Clery, and Disability Services Coordinator. I’ve worked for about 20 years in student affairs and am passionate about working from a student-centered focus to meet people where they are. I enjoy connecting with students and finding ways to support and guide them to necessary resources for success.
Student Affairs Online Lead
As a first-generation college graduate, I understand how important a strong advisor and advocate is to a student’s success. While my advising experience has been exclusively with online students, I’ve learned that authentic communication and a solution focused approach to serving students is the best way to ensure that your experience here at CGU is a stellar one. As the Student Affairs Online Lead, I’m committed to making sure our online students have a rich and engaged experience. But my hope is the work I do here impacts all students.
Student Services Coordinator
I assist the AVP for Student Affairs/Dean of Students & Campus Life and oversee the management of the Dean of Students Office and Office of Disability Services. I serve as the primary contact for scheduling on behalf of the AVP/Dean of Students and Associate Dean of Students and provides support in the daily operations of each department within the office. I love collaborating with staff, student employees, and students to help the various offices of CGU function with ease and efficiency.
