Assistant for Liberal Arts Undergraduate Advising

Office Hours:

I am originally from Pittsburgh, but I have called State College home since 1984. I worked at Park Forest Middle School, assisting three teams of 7th and 8th grade teachers for six years, and have held positions at the Graduate School and with the Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State. I joined Liberal Arts Undergraduate Studies and the Paterno Fellows Program in 2012. I have enjoyed working with students in a supporting / behind the scenes role as they make their way through this exciting time in their lives.

I am a lifelong volunteer, helping out at school events and in sports when my children were younger, as a Red Cross blood donor, at various PA Special Olympics venues, and by serving on the College of the Liberal Arts United Way Committee

Although I am not a Penn State graduate, my husband Terry (MS BA '92), daughter Kelley (AD/PR '09), and son Chris (PSYCH '13) all are proud Penn State alumni.
