What I Do at the Career Services Center

I am a member of the counselor staff, who enjoys assisting students and alumni with their various career issues/concerns ranging from choosing a major to negotiating a job offer. Also, I conduct presentations on Resume Writing , Interviewing, Internships, and Job Search Strategies. I work with all majors but my emphasis is with the College of Business and the College of Technology.


My Master of Education in Higher Education Administration and College Student Personnel was earned from Kent State University and a Bachelor of Science in Technical Education from the University of Akron.

How I Got Here

I returned to school to complete my Master's degree in Higher Ed, after spending many years in human resources. Fortunately, I was hired into Career Services in 1989 and continue to love my job.

Most Unusual Job Held

I was Employee Relations Manager at a chicken processing plant.

About Me

I have two children and four grandchildren. I serve as Sr. Usher at my church. I enjoy maintaining a healthy lifestyle by exercising and jogging regularly at the Rec Center. I recently retired from the Army Reserves with 20 years of service, including a deployment to Uzbekistan from May 2004-May 2005.
