I like to help students learn to navigate life as a college student, so they can make the most of the opportunities that have. My favorite part of what I do is watching students’ progress through their academic careers here, from their freshman year where everything is brand spanking new to their time as a senior where everything has become old hat, and they are ready for the new challenges and opportunities that await for them in the industry.

Fun Fact: I probably know more math than you do; I really like R

I want to help students succeed for selfish reasons—the more successful you students are, the nicer the world will be for me when I am old and gray! University life is a good fit for me, and I enjoy helping students overcome academic obstacles so that university life will be a good fit for them, too. I like meeting people and giving them strategies that enable them to reach their full potential.

Fun Fact:  Can you guess the state I lived in before Florida?

Come and see me if you need help—especially if you are in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, since those are my specialty.

I loved college so much, I decided that I wanted to work for one and I’ve been working with college students for over 9 years. I’ve been at Florida Poly since July 2014. I love working with students on maximizing their opportunities in and outside of the classroom to create their ideal college experience.

Fun Fact about me: I took a 21 day road trip from Florida to California after graduate school & I once took a class in college about Vampires.

Programs I work with: Cyber Gaming & Data Analytics

I am an inaugural Florida Polytechnic University staff member, and find the best part of Florida Poly are our students.  I enjoy connecting students with opportunities, ranging from how to succeed in the classroom to finding that perfect internship.

Fun Fact about me:  I hiked The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) in Summer 2017.
