I was raised in Northern California and am one of six children. I grew up playing a lot of different sports and still enjoy participating in them. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from BYU-Hawaii and lived and worked there for a few years after graduating. I moved to Utah for graduate school and have lived in Utah County since. After earning my graduate degree I have mainly worked in higher education.
I advise students for the Behavioral Science department. Students with last names beginning with the letters F through Le should see me at least once in Fall and Spring semesters to talk about their educational and career goals and their academic progress. I meet with students by appointment, except for some morning and afternoon hours most Thursdays when I allow for drop-in advising. Appointments should be made to see me by calling the Behavioral Science department at 801-863-6377. Those interested in the drop-in Thursday hours need to also call 801-863-6377 to verify that I am available and find out what times I will be in the office.
Working with college students and seeing them achieve goals they have set for themselves is a great reward for me. I believe advising is a collaborative process that requires research and effort by both the advisor and the student. I will guide and support students as they work towards their educational goals, but I will not make decisions for them. Learning to take responsibility for their academic progress is an important step in a student’s development and will motivate them to more fully participate in and feel ownership of their educational pursuits.
