I have had the pleasure of working within the educational field for over 10 years. I started my career as a high school teacher, where I served as a Department Chair and Activities Director. I later transitioned to a College Professor and Academic Advisor at a tier one university. Currently, I serve as a College Administrator. My expertise and current responsiblity centers on ensuring a successful transtion for incoming college freshman and transfer students. I believe with the correct preparation and guidance, all students can be successful. My experience at both the high school and college level has given me the opportunity to understand the needs of students as well as the difficulties many students encounter.
