Biography

Currently an Academic Success Coordinator, Senior (Curriculum + Faculty Connections) for Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University, I am passionate about supporting student success through approaches that integrate academic, professional, and personal interests and commitments. I build collaborative relationships with students to help guide them towards goal identification and attainment. I also work as a liaison to Faculty across the Institute and within the Design School and the School of Music. My role as a Faculty liaison involves creating and sustaining spaces for collective discussion, discernment, and action concerning student learning and curriculum modification.

My educational background in Music Therapy and Higher Education Counseling/Student Affairs informs my practice and work with students. My exposure to the fine arts acts as a lens from which I view the student experience, and I enjoy assisting students in identifying the necessary steps to navigate successful pathways as artists and designers. The relationship building skills I crafted during my graduate counseling program help me to connect with students and establish creative cooperative relationships.

I am an active member in the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) as well as the Council for Academic Advisors (CAA) - ASU's local advising organization. I have presented at local, regional, and national conferences on advising topics such as Holistic Advising for Arts and Design Students, Advisors as Recruiters, Advisor Self-Care and Management of Stress, Communication Strategies for Collaboration and Rapport Building, Creativity, Advising the Right-Brained Student, and Advisors as Holders of Stories. Furthermore, I am a believer in/advocate for the necessity of mentorship, evidenced by my participation in ASU's Commission for the Status of Women (CSW) mentoring program.

My hobbies include running, hiking, and playing my saxophone in a local Phoenix-based Jazz Band.
