Thank you for your interest in SUNY Plattsburgh!

The Admissions staff is ready and willing to answer any questions you have about the undergraduate application process, pathways to enrollment at SUNY Plattsburgh, and transferring credit. We are always happy to assist you.

Professional/Personal Biography: In 2001, I graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a B.A. degree in Sociology, with minors in Psychology and Spanish. I returned for another year and earned my M.A. degree in Liberal Studies: Administration and Leadership in 2002. Following my graduate year, I spent two years working at a small community college in athletics and student affairs, and the next two years in communications and events for a local chamber of commerce. In 2006, I returned to SUNY Plattsburgh to join the Admissions team. When not on campus, you'll likely find me running, cycling, boating, hiking, camping, gardening, skiing, canoeing (or anything else outdoors!) with my husband and children near our home in the Adirondacks.

Most Memorable College Experience: My participation as a four-year intercollegiate athlete on the indoor and outdoor track and field teams. As a student-athlete, I learned life lessons and interpersonal skills that were later essential in shaping my character as a professional.

Favorite SUNY Plattsburgh Activity: Any of the programs offered by the Student Association - from music and comedy to lectures and presentations, they're always new, exciting, and different.

Best advice you received regarding college or would give someone entering college: College is all about making choices, and developing the skills that will allow you to grow both personally and professionally. By embracing unique and challenging opportunities, you will broaden your experiences. Take full advantage of the resources available from the organizations on campus - you'll quickly find yourself meeting new people and enjoying all the perks that college life has to offer!
