- Academic and Career Development
Advice to students: If you are unsure of something, ask anyone at IUPUI—peers, staff, faculty. Likewise, be a resource for others—you are an expert, too!
If you could be any major in your cluster, what would it be? Why?: Environmental Science. I am interested in making our planet better than when I found it. In addition, I like that the degree combines coursework from the School of Science, School of Liberal Arts, and the School of Public Health.
Biography: I am originally from a small town in Western New York and moved to Indiana for graduate school. I’m still here 20 years later! After a brief stint of wanting to be a sports writer, I discovered that I really wanted to work with students. College was a very transformative and impactful part of my own life, so working in higher education was a perfect path. I’ve stayed in college and never looked back! When I’m not at IUPUI, I love to engage in the outdoors—camping, hiking, biking, and just walking around the city with my husband (Purdue alum) and our chocolate lab, Cooper. I also enjoy great food (NY style pizza, of course), live music, and travel. We are venturing to Colorado this summer!
