I'm a native born Mainer, who has spent a little bit of time in a lot of different places from the rocky coasts of Newfounland to the volcanic mountans of Japan!  I came to Machias a few years back and liked it so much that I decided to stay.  I spend a lot of time involved with different campus events and, when I have a few moments free, I like to spend my time gardening, hiking or just reading a good book.  You'll find that my office door is almost always open, so feel free to stop in to say hello.

Student Success Advisor

I’m originally from Washington state but have lived in Wisconsin, New Mexico, and California. One of the reasons I’m now living in Maine is because of all the outdoor recreation opportunities which I enjoyed while working for a summer camp while I was an undergraduate. You’ve made a great choice in coming to UMM where everyone is excited to help you get the most out of your college experience. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourself!

I was born and raised here in Maine and started working at UMM in 2001. I worked in Student Life for awhile and I now have the opportunity to be a Student Success Advisor! In my off time, I enjoy playing music and enjoying beautiful Downeast Maine. You will find that UMM is a very unique and awesome place to learn. I am fortunate to be a part of your experience! Please stop in and say hi!
