- 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 kids and husband and I enjoy cooking, exercising and shopping.

- Assistant Director
As Assistant Director and “pre-health” advisor, I advise students who are interested in pursuing careers in the field of healthcare, including those who are pre-med, pre-dental, or pre-vet. My objective is to support students in gaining acceptance into such professional programs and guiding them to pursue a career path that is attainable, exciting, and fulfilling. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Spanish from Marist College, and a Master’s of Science in College Student Development and Counseling for Northeastern University. I have several years of advising experience and I am excited to use my skills here at WPI. On weekends I enjoy going up to Boston where I lived for many years, normally to visit friends or hunt for an excellent place to eat brunch. Other interests include music, fitness (anything but running!), and pop culture trivia.
- 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.

I am also responsible for managing the Office of Academic Advising’s website and social media outlets. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Bridgewater State University and my Master’s degree in Higher Education in Student Affairs from Salem State University. Outside of WPI I enjoy coaching, running, spending time with my family and friends, and traveling.
- Advisor for Academic Support and Transitional Resources
I advise transfer students and serve as a liaison for 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, and picking up random hobbies like screen printing and brewing my own ginger ale soda.
