After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Psychologyfrom St. Norbert College, I completed my Master’s and Ph.D. inCriminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland. I have been in higher education for over twenty yearsas a criminal justice professor. During my time as a professor, I developed a passionfor advising students and decided to switch to full time advising whenI started at Benedictine in August 2019. I enjoy helping match studentswith the right course and career plan as well as mentoring them throughcollege life.
