I proudly serve as the designated military and veteran advisor for the Kalamazoo campus. Because I am married to a veteran, I understand some of the issues facing military and veteran students as they transition from their role in the military to their role in academics, and I am honored to be a part of that process for these men and women.

I support military and veteran students by collecting GI Bill documentation and forwarding it to the appropriate VA certification personnel here at Davenport University in an effort to ensure accurate and timely GI Bill certification. I also provide support for service members transitioning from military service to civilian learning along with my traditional advising role of course sequencing and academic support. I also serve as the first point of contact for all of my students’ concerns and pride myself on being knowledgeable, resourceful and conscientious in my academic advising of all my advisees—military, veteran and civilian students alike. I look forward to assisting you in your educational journey here at Davenport University!
