I grew up in a military family and have lived in Jacksonville most of my adult life. I have an extensive history at UNF. I have earned a BM in Music Performance (percussion), a BA in English, and a MA in English from UNF. Needless to say, I am very familiar with UNF and its policies! I left Jacksonville for a few years earning a MM degree in Music Performance from the University of Minnesota. My husband and I moved back to Jacksonville after graduate school, and I am happy to be back at UNF helping students as an academic advisor.
When I was a student, I took advantage of the research opportunities offered at UNF, winning a Transformational Learning Opportunity Grant and an Undergraduate Studies Research Grant. I want to help students to also take advantage of all the opportunities UNF has to offer. As an advisor, my goal is to help students make the best decisions about their time at UNF and help them prepare for the future.
