Statement 

Welcome to the TRIO Student Support Services Program at the University of Wisconsin-Rock County!  I am the Director of the program as well as an Academic Advisor.  As the Director, I am responsible for the overall operation of the TRIO program on our campus and at the other two campuses with TRIO Programs:  UW-Marathon and UW-Waukesha.  My goal is to meet the needs of the students while meeting the requirements of our federally funded grant. 

I love to help students succeed.  I do this by assisting with class scheduling, promoting early registration, discussing when to keep or drop a class, as well as exploring what is required of specific majors and careers.  Staying in college is not possible without funding and I help students seek out scholarships and apply for financial aid.  It is important to have 3-4 advising meetings each semester to address any of the above issues and more.  Please know as advisors we are happy to listen to any concerns you might have as you navigate your way through the college experience.

I have been here at UW-Rock since 1998 and worked on college campuses for 10 years before that.  I guess you could say once I got to college I loved it so much I never left. 

I enjoy bicycling, watching football, and baking (and I like to share my treats).  I look forward to getting to know more about you and how I can help you be academically successful.
