International Admissions Advisor

I assist with International Admissions. I am responsible for reviewing applications for prospective students and making them aware of the opportunities here at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Academic Credentials: M.S. College and Agency Counseling, SUNY Plattsburgh (Plattsburgh, NY); M.Ed. English Education, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (Minneapolis, MN); B.A. English, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (Minneapolis, MN).

Brief Biography: I grew up in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota. During college, I studied abroad in Northern Ireland. In Northern Ireland, I learned how to study and live in another culture. I hope that my experience helps me to better understand and assist international students at SUNY Plattsburgh. I came to SUNY Plattsburgh to attend graduate school. I love my beautiful new home which also has many lakes.

Places I have visited: I love traveling and exploring! I have traveled to many places in Europe, Canada, and the United States. In the spring, I went to China for the first time and I hope to go back soon! I also want to visit Japan, Korea, India, Kazakhstan, Venezuela, Peru, Argentina, Tanzania, Trinidad & Tobago and a 1,000 other places.

Favorite SUNY Plattsburgh Activity: SUNY Plattsburgh and the city of Plattsburgh have great places to eat and enjoy time with others. One of my favorite activities is to visit restaurants with a group of good friends.

Favorite experience as an ISS staff member: I love orientation at ISS! It is an exciting time to meet new students and help them transition to a new culture. I love assisting students with taking their first steps to success at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Best advice for prospective international students: College is what you make of it. This means that you determine what kind of experience you have here. I hope that your experience at college is amazing!
