What do you enjoy most about working with MSU students?
I have the opportunity to meet students where they are and help them get to where they want to be, so being a student’s biggest cheerleader is what I enjoy most.

What is the most important advice you would give students?
Find a way (activity, club, class, etc.) to get connected to a faculty or staff member at MSU. The wisdom they can offer you from their experience working at MSU will be so helpful.

Why should students take advantage of The Learning Center?
We offer practical help for all students, and we are in the business of helping students be successful.

What are your research interest/specialty areas?
My specialty area is finding ways to help students be successful. This includes helping students develop study skills, time management skills, and get acclimated to the university. Developing our Supplemental Instruction Program is another specialty area.
