About Me

I am an academic advisor in the Student Success Center and teach FYE 322 and FYE 122. I am also the liaison to the Gary Tharaldson School of Business and the Liffrig Family School of Education and Behavioral Sciences. Primarily, I advise students on majors and minors, on courses, and help guide them on the path to success that they have chosen. The University of Mary has a unique organizational culture. It is inspiring to see Benedictine values permeate every aspect of the University.

Why I’m At Mary

The hiring process at the University of Mary allowed me a glimpse at the strong mission-driven culture here. I planned to move to ND anyway, but the possibility of working at Mary solidified my decision.
