I have recently been given the opportunity to be Interim Retention Counselor in the Advising Success Center. Prior to this position, I was one of the Graduate Assistants in the ASC. I have enjoyed working with students since I began in August 2008, and am happy to have been able to expand my role this year.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the College of St. Scholastica in May 2008. The following fall, I started my Master of Science in Counseling Psychology at Bemidji State University. This past fall I started taking chemical dependency classes, in addition to my counseling psychology classes. In the chemical dependency world, some individuals attend treatment programs seven different times before they are sober. In academics, sometimes, it takes more than one semester for a student to get back up on his/her feet. I’m here to help advise and support students on their college journey.
