As Assistant Dean, I am responsible for the Academic Affairs (Academic Advising, Orientation, Records, Curriculum Development, etc...), Enrollment Management (Recruitment, Admissions, Scholarships, Curriculum planning, etc...), and Student Affairs (Student Organizations, Programming, etc...) functions of the Lyman Briggs College. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in 1989 from Western Michigan University, my Master of Science Degree in 1993 from Kansas State University in Student Counseling and Personnel Services, and anticipate completion of my Doctorate of Philosophy in Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education in 2006 from Michigan State University. My research interests are focused on Residential Learning Communities, student transitional issues, and historical data studies on student enrollment forcasting. I work closely with the Department of Educational Administration supervising graduate intern students, and with the Office of Admissions and Scholarships with national recruitment visits and application reading. I occasionally teach freshman seminar courses and directed study/field experience courses for LBC and guest lecture for Educational Administration.
