Although I have been employed with Davenport University for nearly three years, I am still fairly new to the military advising role. However, that does not mean that I will not do everything in my power to make your transition from the military environment to the academic environment a smooth and rewarding experience. In fact, I take great pride in my ability to ask questions when needed so that I can always provide the most up-to-date information to my students.

Having been married to a member of the Army National Guard for 15 years, I feel as though I provide valuable experience when it comes to living the life as a military spouse. The military life brought about its fair share of hard times, but there are also so many rewarding times, such as the amazing people I have been so blessed to meet. I cannot wait to get the opportunity to learn about our new students and develop relationships which last all the way to graduation. I look forward to getting to know all of our past, present and future military students!
