I am the Undergraduate and Graduate Student Affairs Coordinator for the Department of Biological Sciences. My responsibilities include academic advising for new freshmen and transfer students and continuing freshmen and sophomore majors in the department. I also provide staff support for recruitment, admission and retention of graduate students. My office is a “one-stop shop” for students and faculty who have questions about the curriculum and university academic regulations. If I don’t know the answer to an academic question, it is my job to know where on campus to call to get answers.

Prospective undergraduate and graduate students are strongly encouraged to contact me with general questions about the department and the biology curriculum.
