The best part of being an advisor is being there from beginning to end as a student pursues their degree.  In the beginning, you’re there getting them admitted and settled in.  In the middle, you can start to see the change from student to professional, and then at the end, you watch them graduate. Advising is a very rewarding profession!

I have been an advisor for over 12 years, with the majority of those years here at GSU.  I have advised both undergraduate and graduate students, and currently advise for the Counseling programs. In 2013, I was awarded a Faculty Excellence Award at GSU, and was the first advisor to receive this prestigious honor.   This same year, I was also awarded an Outstanding Advisor Certificate of Merit from the National Academic Advisors’ Association.   

For the past 5 years I have coordinated blood drives for the American Red Cross at my church.  In 2014 I worked with our local chapter to create a Catholic community blood drive for several local churches, with the purpose of garnering more turnouts and making it less work for each parish.  In addition, my dog Tempe is a therapy dog, and we go to the local hospital and visit patients to try and bring them a bit of joy while they are recuperating.  She loves all the attention!
