Assistant to the Dean


I have worked within the CLA Advising office since 1994. Throughout my time with CLA, I have had many opportunities to be involved and learn a variety of policies, procedures, and systems. My role has evolved from an advisor to the Assistant to the Dean. I continue to advise probationary students, but have become involved in assisting CLA faculty develop new courses and programs, and help coordinate how new courses and programs are designed and managed across the curriculum. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UMD with criminology and sociology majors. Later, I completed a Master of Education degree from UMD.
