Title
Associate Director, Advising
Department : Academic Resources Center
Office location: Unity Hall, 5th Floor

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers. In my role as the Associate Director of the Academic Resources Center, I oversee the daily operations of the Academic Resources Center (ARC), a comprehensive peer tutoring program offering support in a variety of STEM subjects. In the ARC we offer one-on-one tutoring as well as Math and Science Help (MASH) group tutoring. I also serve as an academic advisor to a caseload of undergraduate students, providing guidance on academic planning and supporting students as they identify academic and personal goals and establish plans for their time at WPI. 

My main goal as an advisor is to support students and help them understand the different opportunities available at WPI as well as addressing any challenges or concerns that they may face. Part of being a college student means getting connected to the resources available on campus and I believe that this is a crucial step in making the most of your college experience. Outside of WPI I enjoy running, boxing, puzzles, eating red grapes, and occasionally playing video games.
