- Director of Academic Advising
I oversee the operations of the Office of Academic Advising. Our office ensures that students and faculty are supported through the advising process. It is a fun place to work, as students always have exciting goals.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family. Our two kids, Marcus and Dylan, are a ton of fun. I also coach my wife, Steph, who competes in track and field and got to participate at the London Olympics. This also gives me a great opportunity to travel overseas, which I love to do.
- Associate Director of Academic Advising and First Year Advising Programs
I am the Associate Director of Academic Advising and First Year Advising Programs. I joined WPI in 2005 and served as the Assistant Director of Student Activities through September 2006 prior to my current position. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, as well as a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership with a concentration in Student Development from Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, CT. I am also a Certified Holistic Health Counselor from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. My primary focus is working with students in our first year advising programs (Insight) and helping first year students transition successfully to WPI. Outside of WPI, I enjoy spending time with my daughter and husband and I enjoy cooking, exercising and shopping.
- Assistant Director of Academic Advising and Pre-Professional Programs
I advisee all pre-professional students, that includes Pre-Health, Pre-Law and Teacher Prep.
Outside of work I like to spend time with my family. I love traveling around the United States and when I am lucky traveling to Europe! I also enjoy working out and taking my dog Cassie for walks.
- Administrative Assistant VI
I serve as the administrative assistant in the office. I manage AP and transfer credit evaluations and support the office by performing administrative and receptionist functions, such as scheduling appointments, preparing correspondence, maintaining office files and supervising work study students. Outside of work I spend a lot of quality time with my family and friends. I am also very involved with my church and I enjoy cooking and crafts.

- Advisor for Academic Support & Learning Resources
I oversee the MASH and Tutoring programs run in the ARC, teach the Insight Wellness course in A & C terms, and serve as a resource to sophomores and students on academic probation or academic warning. Outside of WPI, I love to spend time with friends and family, decorate my new house, and try new recipes from Pintrest!
- Advisor for Academic Support and Transitional Resources
I am the OAA liaison for transfer students and those students transitioning into WPI, Mass Academy students, Greek Life, and Athletics. Also, I support students who are on academic warning and probation and serve as a resource for sophomores. I’m originally from Illinois and am a Midwesterner through and through. Before moving to Massachusetts, I earned my B.A. in English for Secondary Education at Hope College (Holland, MI) and my M.S. in College Student Personnel from Miami University (Oxford, OH). Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, reading, Netflixing, getting outdoors for hikes, traveling (Iceland last year, maybe Patagonia next), and picking up random hobbies like screen printing and brewing my own ginger ale soda.
- Advisor for Academic Support and Technology
I supervise the Peer Academic Coaching Program and I teach the Time Management Series in B and C terms as well as the Summer Academic Success Program in E term. I am also the advisor for students who are undecided about their majors, and I support students on academic warning and probation. Outside of work I like to spend time with my friends, cook, read, and exercise. Also, I am from the Berkshires so I enjoy going home to see the foliage and to spend time on the lake with my family.
