I’ve been with the School of Pharmacy for 20 years providing academic, admissions, and career advising for UW-Madison undergraduate students interested in exploring the professional Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. I’m also a course coordinator/instructor for our pharmacy exploration courses designed to help students strategically explore pharmacy career paths, build connections with practicing pharmacists, pharmacy students and faculty. I truly enjoy the opportunities I have to connect with students on a daily basis to answer their questions, provide support and guidance, and help them navigate their academic journeys!
I was born and raised in a suburb of Chicago and decided – rather spur of the moment – to forego my acceptance at a college closer to home for a spot at Madison after I visited and fell in love with the campus many years ago. I’ve lived in Madison ever since, earning my master’s degree in counseling, working as a therapist and then re-careering into my role here on campus. When I’m not working, I enjoy good food, gardening, walks on many of Madison’s great trails, and spending time with family, friends and my two active rescue dogs.
